For the forecast, a fairly nice day today, prior to a short wave upper level trough moving in this evening into Tuesday with a strong North Westerly flow aloft. Marine layer should influence our area with mostly cloudy skies in the mornings and sunny periods as they disipate for Wednesday through Friday. Another ridge is forecasted to build into the area by Saturday. There is a chance of some shower development during the forecast period but its likely to be fairly dry during the week and slightly cooler.

    Northerly flow for most of the week.

   Inconsistencies in the models make it hard to determine precipitation amounts for the week.

    Stratus layer along the coast spreading into the valleys Sunday morning August 17, 2014.

    Moisture should slip down the coast by Wednesday, but may not be very juicy.
