For the forecast we can expect sunny skies today and into early next week. The upper level ridge offshore remains entrenched over the Eastern Pacific. May see some cloud on Saturday as a weak trough moves through our area. The long term forecast for the remainder of October is very similar to what we had last October.

The ridge is still here Tuesday October 22 Nd per this model!
