Should be soft from the get go today with the warm alpine temperatures.

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

For the forecast, the upper level ridge will prevail over the area into Monday with warm temperatures due to the low level offshore flow. On Monday night the flow will switch back to onshore with a low pressure system bringing some cloud and moist air back into our zone. Tuesday will see an upper trough push into the area with an increase in clouds and the possibility of some showers. The trough will bring overcast conditions to the area on Wednesday into Thursday. The ridge will likely rebuild by Friday. The FL will remain in the 3200+ range into Tuesday, by Wednesday we should see it drop to around 2500 meters.

    High strengthens for today.

    Should be a very warm day.

    High again for Monday

    Flow for Sunday into Wednesday.
