For the Forecast, a strong upper ridge and weak offshore flow will bring sunny skies to the area for today. A very weak front will brush by Sunday afternoon with unsettled conditions. Freezing levels should max out at 1500 meters and drop slightly during the evenings over the weekend. Monday will see the ridge strengthen and bring sunny conditions in a Northerly flow with  the FL maxing out at around 1200 meters and dropping to the surface in the evening and early morning. This pattern will persist into Thursday. Hopefully by next weekend we will see a pattern change. In the mean time just enjoy the sun and suck up some vitamin D. 

    Surface High and Ocean High for today.

    Lots of moisture around for Sunday.

   Cooler and a Northerly flow for Monday.


     Can you say Omega Block. Monday through Wednesday.
