    As of 07:00 Hrs this am we have clear skies and unlimited visibility.

For the forecast, the upper level ridge will strengthen today with warm temperatures in a Northerly flow aloft. The FL will rise to around 4000 meters and then gradually drop into Saturday. The ridge may break down on Saturday night into Sunday as a weakening trough pushes through the area with unsettled conditions. There is a chance of some showers but at this time it looks like a fairly dry cooler flow. Monday will see ridging as the high pressure over the Pacific rebuilds into our zone for early next week.

     High pressure strengthens today.

    Lows to the North and South

     High still in control, low to the North might send some cloud our way for Sunday.

    Looks pretty dry for Sunday as well.

    Sunny again for Monday.
