For the forecast, a very weak ridge of high pressure is trying to establish itself in our zone. Unsettled conditions for today with cool temperatures (FL 1100 meters) with a mix of sun and cloud. Cloud will cling to the mountains most of the day. A strong fast moving front will arrive this evening into Sunday. Guesstimate of 8-10 cm by tomorrow afternoon. Monday and Tuesday will bring some weak fronts with light snow above 1200 meters. A ridge of high pressure may push into the area by Wednesday.
