    As of 07:00 Hours we have mostly cloudy skies and unlimited visibility. Inverted temperatures.

For the forecast, high pressure will break down today with an increase in the cloud cover in a Northwest flow aloft. The flow should switch to Westerly and we may see some very light isolated showers later today. The freezing level will slowly come back down to around 1000 meters tonight. A cold front will move through on Monday with light precipitation becoming moderate by the evening. As the front passes we should see the FL drop back down to the valley floor. Tuesday will be cloudy in the morning then become unsettled in the afternoon as the modified arctic front moves into our area. Wednesday through next weekend is looking sunny. We may see some warm air in the area by Thursday. Guesstimate: 3-5 cm by Monday morning above 1500 meters, 10-15 cm by Tuesday morning above 800 meters.

    Cloud cover will increase this am.

    Cloudy with some light precipitation Monday.

    Cloudy Tuesday morning becoming unsettled by the afternoon.
