For the forecast, the upper low is just Southeast of our region so it will spin some cloud at us today. A Northerly flow aloft will likely keep the cloud to a minimum with mostly sunny skies, especially by this afternoon. The upper level ridge developing in the Northwest Pacific will bring sunny skies to the area for Thursday into Sunday. The freezing level today will rise to 2200 meters and slowly increase in the next few days topping out at around 3200 meters by Saturday into Sunday. Another low pressure system may affect our area by Monday or Tuesday. Get out the sun screen.


    Some thin scattered cloud this morning.

    There is some moisture to the East but hopefully it will move Eastward.

    Thursday the ridge begins to strengthen.

    Nice looking day for Friday.

    Saturday is looking very dry. Temps likely to reach the low 20's.
