September 4, 2013

Not a bad looking morning, certainly drier than yesterday.

Thin cloud still in the area but the majority of the precipitation is south of us.

At 1835 meters the temperature was + 8.5, winds were 0-10 KPH from the NNE. At 1550 meters the temperature was +9. In the valley the temperature was +12. At the Nesters weather station 8.1 mm of rain was recorded yesterday. Observations taken this am at 08:30 hrs.

For the forecast the strong low pressure off the coast is moving south which will bring unsettled weather to our area for the next few days. Rainfall amounts have eased off for tomorrow and Friday as the unstable air mass is tracking south of us. We may see some precipitation today with the slight chance of a thudershower later today. Thursday looks fairly dry with light rain forecasted for Friday. The week end also looks unsettled with a mix of sun, cloud, and possible rain showers. Our neighbours to the south will be feeling the brunt of the moisture. Appears to be a drying trend starting Sunday into early next week?!!

A mixed bag yesterday, one minute it would be raining and then clear up with blue sky. Thunder and lightning came within 15 km of our area yesterday.

Yesterday morning in between rain events.

Forecasted precipitation for tomorrow morning.
