    Stratus layer this morning, should lift and dissipate?




For the forecast, high pressure aloft moved into the area later on Tuesday bringing drier conditions back to the area with near flat surface flow. The mid layer cloud layer should slowly dissipate and an upper level cloud layer will slowly develop giving us an unsettled day. A stronger low pressure system will slowly move into the area Thursday, unsettled in the morning with mostly cloudy skies in the afternoon turning to light precipitation later in the day. Precipitation will increase late Thursday evening into early Friday morning (Lt-Mod) and slowly dissipate by Friday afternoon as a weak upper level trough moves through the zone into Saturday with cloudy skies and the chance of some showers. Sunday is also looking mostly cloudy with some showers possible. Monday, as of now is looking unsettled if we get some weak ridging, back to a more typical June.


    The low may brush us but some precipitation is on its way.
