Some sun Tuesday morning with more cloud in the afternoon with the chance of some rain showers Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Cool moist onshore flow for Wednesday as an upper level trough brings some light precipitation and a lowering FL. May see some fresh snow on the higher peaks in our region. More unsettled weather for the remainder of the week with periods of showers forecasted into Friday. The low should exit Saturday with some weak ridging Saturday into Sunday. As of now the ridge strengthens for Monday but that is a week away. Still looking fairly dry for this time of the year.
