For the forecast, the cool low coming out of the Gulf of Alaska will bring cloudy wet weather to the area for Wednesday into Thursday as it runs over our zone. An upper level trough in a Southwesterly flow will bring wet overcast conditions to the area today with the FL starting at around 2500 meters gradually falling to 1600 meters by tonight. Thursday is also overcast and wet with light to moderate precipitation with the FL hovering in the 1700 meter range. As of now the wettest period looks like Wednesday night into Thursday morning.  By Friday, the low parks itself to the Southeast and will spin clouds and showers our way for the weekend. As it migrates South we should see unsettled conditions in our zone Friday, with a mix of sun and cloud, some isolated showers will also be in the mix. Similar conditions can be expected Saturday with wetter conditions to come on Sunday.

    Wet weather with a weak cold front pushing through the area today. Showers for this morning.

    Onshore flow for Wednesday with Moderate winds.

    Unsettled Wednesday morning with showers, then rain later in the day.

    Clouds thicken for the afternoon with more rain on the way.

    Low parks to the South for the weekend spinning clouds and some moisture our way.
