  660 meters    +13, Valley Temp, Max Temp Yesterday was +21.4. 0.0 mm of Precip recorded yest

    As of 06:30 Hrs this am we have a mostly overcast sky with variable visibility.

For the forecast, unsettled weather for today as a dirty ridge exits the area with the chance of some light rain showers in the mix. The Southerly flow will switch to Northerly flow aloft as the next low pressure out of the Gulf of Alaska works its way down the coast. Unsettled conditions will prevail for the week with cooler temperatures expected, as a series of cold upper lows move down the coast. Tuesday is looking mostly cloudy, drier on Wednesday and Thursday with some sun in the forecast. Not great confidence in the medium range models but it certainly looks like the low pressure will continue to bring unseasonably cooler temps with some showers during the later part of the week. Friday may be an interesting day. Wish I had a better news.

    Unsettled today, mostly cloudy with some rain showers.

    Mostly cloudy for Tuesday.

    Wednesday may see a very weak ridge bring some drier conditions.

    Thursday may have some potential to be a nice day.

    Unsettled again for Friday.

    Unsettled for Saturday.

    Unsettled for Sunday.
