    As of 07:00 Hours we have high scattered cloud and unlimited visibility.

   This am image shows the potential for cloud to move into the area today.

For the forecast, mostly sunny skies early this morning with increasing high cloud for today as a weak high pressure builds with a light Northwest flow, for a short period of time before a weak cold front and associated trough move into there area early Saturday morning. The trough will stall and linger over our area bringing cooler temperatures and cloudy conditions into early next week in a weak Westerly flow. There is a chance of some scattered showers with the likelihood of that happening on Sunday morning. Still cannot rule out some isolated intermittent showers into next Tuesday.  Temperatures will remain below the normal seasonal values. Models are in disagreement to when the trough will move away but at this time it may remain until Wednesday. More on that in Monday's post.

    Clouds moving into the area today.

    Ridge trying to push back but clouds will be here by tomorrow morning.

    Cloudy on Sunday with a chance of some showers.

    High is moving Eastward, low is pushing a trough our way.
