    As of 07:00 Hours this am we have sunny skies with some scattered cirrus cloud and unlimited vis.

For the forecast, the high pressure aloft will continue to bring warm sunny weather into Monday night in a Northwesterly flow aloft. We may see some high cirrus cloud in the area again today and Monday. The high will migrate East on Monday evening allowing some marine moisture and associated cloud to move in for Tuesday in a Southerly flow aloft. We can expect unsettled conditions for the remainder of the week as a weak cold front and several troughs move through the zone with light spring showers. At this time Thursday could be the cloudiest day and we may see cooler temperatures than we have been experiencing. Freezing levels will remain near and above the local peaks for most of the week, dropping to around 1800 meters on Thursday.

    High pressure remains until Tuesday.

    Some moisture to the North.

    Clouds will slowly roll in on Tuesday.

    Unsettled for Wednesday.
