    As of 06:30 Hrs this am we have high scattered cloud and unlimited visibility.


High pressure will continue to bring mostly sunny skies to the area today in a Northerly flow aloft.
The FL will rise to just below 2000 meters with the chance of some convective cloud development in the afternoon. This pattern will continue for Tuesday as well before the ridge weakens and we are also influenced by a low to the East. A weak trough will bring the chance of some precipitation with warm temperatures from Wednesday into the weekend. Looking fairly dry with spring like weather with the FL progressively rising to 2500 meters by Friday. Difficult to determine precip amounts but there certainly is a chance of some showers between Wednesday and Saturday. More on that as we get closer. Dry for the next 2 days.
