The larger upper level low was nice to us after all.  For this am we will have overcast skies and some flurries in a Westerly flow aloft, before a broad upper level trough brings unsettled weather tonight into early next week. The FL will fluctuate slightly over the next few days with a maximum of 1000 meters on Friday dropping back to surface and slightly above surface with day time heating into Tuesday. The low dips south on Saturday and pushes into the Oregon coast. The Arctic front will bring cooler temperatures back into our zone on Saturday. .
Guesstimates: 4-8 cm by Friday morning, trace-2 cm by Saturday morning, trace-2 by Sunday morning, 1-2 cm by Monday morning.
