For the forecast,  low pressure to our South will bring cloudy conditions for this morning, with unsettled conditions later today as it moves East. Ridge of high pressure will begin to rebuild this evening with sunny conditions for Tuesday. Clouds will begin to build for Tuesday night as another Pacific front moves onshore for cloudy wet conditions on Wednesday.  A brief flat dirty ridge may develop for Thursday with unsettled conditions and some showers, before a wet upper level trough with a tropical Pacific influence moves onshore for Friday into Saturday. We can expect light to moderate precipitation with the Freezing level hovering around the local peaks. Will have an update on the wet Halloween on Friday.
