Weather Observations for October 3, 2016: taken at 07:00 Hours.

    As of 07:00 Hrs this am we have broken cloud and unlimited visibility.

For the forecast, a slow moving upper low will bring a mixed bag of weather to the area this week in a Westerly flow aloft. Today we can expect unsettled conditions early this am as a spit flow moves through, with cloudier conditions this afternoon (cold front) into Tuesday morning with intermittent showers and a lowering freezing level. We will likely see a drier pattern by Tuesday afternoon with unsettled conditions by the evening into Wednesday. Low will strengthen Thursday in a stronger Westerly flow with rain expected Thursday evening into the weekend. The European model is in disagreement with the NAM and GFS for the coming weekend so more on that later in the week.

    Weak front for later this morning.

    Image from this am. Split flow.

    Slow moving low coming down the coast.

    Overcast and showery for later today into Tuesday morning.

    Unsettled Wednesday.

    Low will move inland late Wednesday or sometime Thursday.

    Expect changes for the weekend forecast.
