June 21, 2013

Looking North East this morning.

Looking to the South, only the highest peaks are visible.

At 2240 meters the temperature was +4.5 with winds 5-15 KPH from the NNE. At 1550 meters the temperature was +6. In the valley it was +12. Observations taken at 08:00 hrs this AM.

For the forecast we can expect unsettled conditions through Saturday as a weak ridge of high pressure makes its way into our area. The low level flow is weak so it will take some time for the clouds to dissipate.  Sunday looks to be a sunny day. Another low pressure system will arrive Monday into Tuesday with more rain. Wednesday is looking unsettled with some sunny breaks.
