For the forecast, the high pressure and associated Northwesterly flow will give us mostly sunny skies today, some cloud from the North will likely spill into the area later today. Convective activity still likely. A dry upper trough will move through Saturday into Sunday with unsettled weather and the possibility of some rain on Sunday. Next week is looking unsettled with some moisture possible on Tuesday from a stronger onshore flow and cooler air mass.

    As of 06:30 we have clear skies and unlimited visibility in the alpine.

    High pressure maintaing dominance into Saturday and beyond.

    Model looks good for today with a Nothwesterly flow, cloud development likely later today.

    Looking at the GFS we may see some moisture move into the area Sunday?
