For the forecast, we can expect another sunny day today as the high pressure aloft remains in our zone. Tuesday at this time is also looking quite nice with the possibility of cloud development later in the day. The high pressure is slowly being pushed East as a low moves down the coast.  Unsettled conditions will continue into Wednesday with a mix of sun, cloud, and cooler temperatures. The low pressure system to the North will bring increasing cloud to the area Wednesday evening with the chance of some light precipitation into Thursday and Friday. Check GFS models below!!  Saturday at this time is looking unsettled as the ridge tries to reestablish itself for the weekend. There is some disagreement in the models for the weekend so more on that Friday.

    Satellite image from Sunday afternoon, looking pretty clear.

    Big picture from yesterday, clouds expected on Wednesday but I doubt if it will rain much.

    GFS model not showing much precipitation for us on Thursday.

    High pressure rebuilds late Friday into Saturday.
