The flow will change tomorrow bringing a Westerly flow aloft and we will see cooler temperatures with some cloud by Sunday into Monday. An upper trough will arrive in the middle of the week with a change in our weather pattern. Models are not in agreement on the timing but we will be in for a cooler and wetter pattern.
