For the forecast, the trough has been pushed Southeastward as a strong Northerly flow clears out our zone, the strong upper level ridge has taken over with sunny skies and warmer temperatures. Clouds are still expected to form this afternoon. Sunday is looking sunny and warmer as the ridge builds in strength. Monday the high is expected to shift, associated with a low level offshore flow. This will bring warm temperatures to the zone before becoming unsettled into Tuesday. A more zonal pattern is expected for the rest of the week, but models are still conflicting. More on that tomorrow.  Enjoy the sun.

                          As of 07:00 hrs we have a few scattered clouds and unlimited visibility.
