For the Forecast, the upper ridge will bring unsettled conditions (mix of sun and cloud) in a dry and warm airmass into Saturday. The ridge will break down late Saturday\early Sunday morning allowing a weak cold front to spread light precipitation into the area Sunday with a freezing level around 1200 meters. The ridge may rebuild for Monday prior to a series of weak frontal bands to move through the area next week with cooler temperatures than we have been experiencing. Freezing levels for the next few days will fluctuate from 1500-1900 meters, dropping to 1000 meters on Saturday. Guesstimates 2-4 cm by Sunday morning, 3-5 cm by Monday morning. These amounts will likely change as we get closer to the less than needed event!



    Mostly cloudy yesterday in the satellite image.

   Big picture has some cloud way out in the Pacific that may reach us by Sunday.

    Dry and cooler for today, short wave trough  moving down the coast.

    Cold front forecasted to arrive late Saturday night early Sunday morning.
