FORECAST:

More of the same, unsettled weather with periods of moisture for most of the week. Hopefully a change by the weekend. An upper level trough will bring unsettled weather for today and Tuesday in a Southwest flow aloft, before a Pacific front brings rain for Wednesday. The low may bring more unseasonable moisture for Thursday into Friday, but here is a chance it may just be unsettled. Looking into next week there is a good chance of some ridging and warm temperatures.

A short lived ridge will bring a mix of sun and cloud for today with the FL rising to 3500 meters by Tuesday, with increasing cloud before another cool moist Pacific low brings more precipitation for Wednesday. Looks like it will be quite wet.
