Mostly sunny this morning with increasing cloud cover as the day progresses in a Southerly flow aloft. Enjoy the last of the sunshine for a while as a series of weak Pacific fronts are in the mix for at least one week. The front to our south will bring cloud to the area this afternoon with unsettled weather. The FL will spike to around 2200 meters. An upper trough pushes in for Wednesday with light precipitation and the FL spiking at around 1800 meters. A lull in the systems on Thursday as another weak front pushes through Thursday afternoon with very light precip. The fronts approaching into the weekend will be fairly weak so not a lot of snow but the FL should begin to descend by Friday night. Guesstimates: 1-3 cm by Wednesday morning,  8-12 cm by Thursday morning, 1-2 cm by Friday morning, 8-12 cm by Saturday morning.
