FORECAST:

Mix of sun and cloud for today in a Westerly to Northwesterly flow aloft. Mostly sunny this am. Chance of some drizzle or short period of light rain early Tuesday morning before more unsettled weather for Tuesday. Wednesday is looking similar with perhaps a bit more sun. Dito for Thursday and Friday as a weak upper trough pushes in from the North. There is a chance of some precipitation during Thursday and Friday but at this time looks minimal or not at all. The upper trough will bring some precip into the area Saturday into Sunday with Sunday looking like the wettest day. Lots can change between now and then so standby. So far we have been experiencing another relatively dry cycle in June. To date only 6.5 mm of rain has been recorded at the Nester's Weather Station.
