FORECAST:

A weak frontal band with periods of light rain for this morning in a Westerly flow aloft. A cold front and associated upper level trough will push through later today bringing the freezing level down to
around 1000 meters by tonight. A few isolated lingering showers Tuesday morning before an upper level ridge brings in a cool drying trend. The ridge will strengthen and likely remain in our zone into Friday. FL will likely drop to the valley Tuesday night with a gradual warm up into Friday. A front is expected for Saturday but it should be fairly weak with just some showers. Likely drying out Sunday with mostly clouds but no bets on that at the moment. The ridge looks fairly strong.  It is that time of the year when we should be seeing stronger fronts arriving. Perhaps next week!!
