A cold front passed through the area early this morning with cool temperatures in its wake. A cool upper level low will bring unsettled weather to the area today with the Fl presently at around 3000 meters dropping to 1800 meters later in the day, in a Southerly flow aloft. Tomorrow will be similar as the upper level low spins a moist air mass our way. We can expect scattered showers, some breaks but mostly cloudy conditions before the upper low moves South , bringing drier weather for Sunday, as a weak ridge builds. The upper flow is expected to shift Westerly on Monday with a moist cool air mass for most of the week.

    Unsettled for today with some sunny breaks.

    Low will move down the coast with a weak ridge building for Sunday.

    Low to the North will bring cool moist weather for most of the week.
