   As of 07:00 Hours we have cloudy skies and unlimited visibility.


For the forecast, we can expect a mostly cloudy day with very light precipitation later in the day. The freezing level will hover around 1400 meters in a Southwesterly flow aloft.(dropping to 1000 meters tonight).  The majority of the precipitation from the low will be to the south of our area. A short lived surface high will begin to build early Monday morning bringing sunny skies by the afternoon then clouding over into the evening (FL ranging from 1200-1700 meters). Tuesday will also see mostly cloudy skies with some light precipitation later in the day. As of now Wednesday is looking unsettled with some isolated showers and a FL ranging from 1500-2000 meters. The models are still out of sync, so the forecast is bound to change quickly during the week. Guesstimates: Trace to 3 cm above surface for Monday morning, Trace to 3 cm by Wednesday morning above 1500 meters.
