7.9 mm of precip has fallen since Friday.

For the forecast, unsettled weather will continue through the week. We should see a mix of sun and cloud today as the high pressure continues to build to the south. A weak front to the North will bring cloudier skies tomorrow. Models indicate that there is a chance of showers during this forecast period.  Wednesday is looking unsettled, Thursday the high pressure may push back and give us some nicer weather. Friday starts out unsettled but as of now it looks like the deep low developing in the Gulf of Alaska could bring rain to the area Friday evening. More on that on Friday.  Temperatures have been well above the average for this time of the year.





    Still on the edge of the low and high. Could get some showers over the next few days.

    Weak front to the North will still be influencing the weather pattern in our area.


     The low looks like it will be the dominant feature by Friday.
