For the repetative forecast, high pressure aloft will prevail over our zone through the weekend.  The pressure gradients may ease off allowing more stratus cloud to form.The high should weaken early next week and we are anticipating a front to arrive Late Monday into Tuesday.  Monday we will see high clouds develop as the weather in the North East Pacific approaches the coast. Models are in some agreement that the front will be weak with little precip. A series of weak fronts will continue into next week with light amounts forecasted at this point in time. Unsettled weather for Wednesday is likely. Freezing levels are still looking pretty high for the weekend, 3200-3000 meters. When the weak front arrives they should drop to around 1200 meters by Wednesday morning.

GFS model of front arriving Monday.

Stratus finally moved off the ocean, low lying inland areas are still in the stratus clouds.

The high is really big, but in this perspective looks kinda big.
