FORECAST:

A weak upper ridge will bring unsettled weather for today in a Westerly flow aloft. A mix of sun and cloud with increased cloudiness as the day progresses and the FL rising to 2200+ meters. A weak upper trough will bring dry unsettled weather for Friday. This pattern will continue into next week as the High and Low push back and forth into the weekend. Cannot rule out the fact that there is some moisture around and we may se a brief shower tonight. Chance of some intrmitent showers in the early hours of Saturday morning before it drys out again. Chance fo some showers on Sunday as well but for the most part we are looking at a nice stretch of dry unsettled weather with a mix of sun and cloud. Guesstimates: Trace to 1 mm by Friday morning,  trace to 1 mm by Saturday morning, trace to 2 mm by Monday morning.
