Weather observations for August 12, 2014; taken at 07:00 HRS.

2180 Meters        +16, Winds were 20-30 KPH from the ESE
1835 Meters        +17, Winds were 5-10 KPH from the E
1550 Meters        +16, Relative Humidity 45 %
  660 Meters        +12, Valley Temperature, max Temp Yesterday +33

    As of 07:00 Hrs this am we have scattered high cloud, unlimited visibility and smoke to the North.


For the Forecast, high pressure aloft with a low level Northerly flow will bring warm temperatures and sunny skies for today. The high will shift inland later today bringing a  Southerly flow which will usher in a change in the weather pattern as an upper low moves in for Tuesday through Thursday, bringing unsettled weather (sunny periods, clouds, and showers). Typhoon Halong and hurricane Genevieve will pump moisture and energy into the North Pacific allowing cooler temperatures and some welcome precipitation. As of now there is some anticipated ridging to develop for Friday or Saturday, back to nice weather with seasonable temperatures Sunday into early next week. Models are not clear on what will happen at the end of the week, so more on that in the next post.
