For the forecast, an upper trough is pushing in as the ridge of high pressure weakens and moves West. The trough with the onshore flow will bring unsettled conditions to the area through Saturday. We can expect cloudy mornings with sunny breaks in the afternoons and the chance of some isolated showers in the mix. There is also a good chance that some of those days will remain dry depending on the amount of convective activity we receive. Tuesday has a 40 % chance of some rain showers. Cooler temperatures will prevail for the remainder of the week.


    Looking like a fairly nice day with cooler temperatures.

    Cold front and associated low to the North will bring unsettled conditions to the area this week.


    High pressure moves West allowing low to the North to spill cloud and some moisture.
