    Looking West as of 07:00 hours this am we have scattered cloud and unlimited visibility.


For the forecast, looking like a mostly sunny day as a weak upper ridge aloft brings dry and warmer conditions in a light Southerly flow with some pop corn clouds this morning.  Onshore flow will strengthen Tuesday so we will likely see some cloud development later in the afternoon. Wednesday will likely see clear skies in the morning with cloud development in the afternoon. A weak upper level low will bring cloudy conditions for Thursday into Friday with an upper level shortwave trough moving through the area. May be drier on Thursday then Friday but the models are in disagreement on precipitation amounts. Looks like a slight chance of some showers on Friday. Long term the forecast may dry out by next weekend but more on that in Fridays post.

    Northerly flow aloft with ridging for today.

    Low to the North,High to the South.

    Low to the Northwest will bring a change to the nice weather by mid week.

    Low begins to move Southwest by Tuesday.

    Low will likely be over the area by Wednesday evening.

    Looking moist for Thursday and Friday.
