   As of 07:15 hours we have clear skies and unlimited visibility.

    07:15 hours this am, low is moving down the coast very slowly.

For the forecast, a weak ridge will bring another nice day before an upper level low moves over our zone for Tuesday with some showers in the forecast. The upper level flow will be Westerly for most of the day switching to Southerly by tonight. The low will shift by early Wednesday with some lingering clouds likely for the better part of the day. A long wave trough will follow on Thursday with dry seasonable conditions, which should bring nice summer weather into the weekend.
Another low is expected to come out of the Gulf of Alaska sometime Saturday, the high out in the Pacific is pretty big, hopefully it will remain nice into the weekend.

    Low is moving down the coast.

     Low will remain off the Coast for today then moving onshore sometime Tuesday.

    High pressure in the Pacific is huge.

    Will see isolated or scattered showers Tuesday, mostly in the afternoon, chance of a thunder storm.

    Some lingering cloud on Wednesday but looks dry.

     Long wave trough will bring dry weather to the area for Thursday.

    Low out of the NE expected for Saturday August 6 Th.

    Sunday of next weekend is a way's off, but not looking that great!!

    Flow of the lows for this week.
