For the Forecast, the strong frontal system has passed with the brunt of the moisture to the South of our zone. Unstable air in its wake will bring some isolated showers this morning. A weak high pressure will influence the area this morning into this evening, before a weak warm front brings precipitation to the area on Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday evening. A deep low will affect the area on Thursday with more moderate-heavy precipitation. As of now Friday and Saturday are looking like nice days if you need to be doing yard work, unsettled but dry. Freezing levels will drop today with the unsettled weather but the next warm front will bring them back up and hovering around 2500 meters Wednesday evening.


    Long range models have Saturday looking like a dry sunny day with a possible inversion.
