    Mid level cloud should rise as the morning progresses.

For the forecast, a mix of sun and cloud for today with a low level onshore flow and light Northwesterly flow aloft. Cloud cover should increase with the onshore flow later today, the air mass appears to be fairly dry. The FL will likely hover in the 2200 meter range.  The upper trough in the area will bring overcast conditions and the chance of some intermittent showers for Thursday. The low to the North will slide through the zone Friday bringing unsettled weather to the area for the weekend with cool showery spring like conditions.  A weak ridge may bring some sunny breaks in the unsettled pattern for Sunday into Monday. The ridge should strengthen for Tuesday with mostly sunny skies.
