FORECAST:

The ridge of high pressure which has brought us some amazing weather for some time now will weaken slowly today as the low to our North brings in a broad upper level trough with cooler and showery weather forecasted for the next week. Unsettled for today with a stable air mass and in a Southwesterly flow aloft. Tomorrow we should see more cloud being pushed onshore with fewer sunny breaks. By Wednesday more cloud with the chance of some showers. A series of stronger upper troughs will push through into the weekend with cloudier weather and below normal temperatures. Will likely see some snow showers in the alpine over next weekend. We did have an awesome run of amazing weather, the next week will be good for the forest.
