   Low is spinning just south east of us, the high situated in the pacific should bring sunny weather for
   next week.

At 1835 meters the temperature was +8, winds were 5-25 KPH from the NNE. At 1550 meters the temperature was +11, 2.3 mm of rain was recorded there overnight. In the valley the temperature was +15. Observations taken at 09:00 hrs September 7, 2013.

For the forecast we will see the upper level low linger today with the slight chance of some rain showers. An upper level ridge offshore will slowly bring drying conditions into next week. Tomorrow and Monday will be sunny with cloudy conditions. The ridge strengthens on Tuesday with sunny skies and warmer temperatures for the remainder of the week.
