For the Forecast, a very weak warm front will bring cloudy skies this morning. The strong upper level ridge will bring sunny skies this afternoon into Wednesday and Thursday. Onshore flow may bring clouds to the area Thursday night into Friday as a weak front moves off the coast. Still some disagreement in the models so more info as we get closer to the weekend. Freezing levels will begin to rise today, by tonight we could get to 3000 meters with 3800 meters possible by Thursday. Temperatures in the alpine have the potential to spike to +18 by Thursday.

    As of 08:00 hrs in the alpine we have high overcast and unlimited visibility.

    The high pressure will push weather systems to the North on Wednesday.

    Saturday is looking wet for us!!

     Looks like the low will push the high away for late Friday.
