FORECAST:

Weak shortwave ridging this morning in a Westerly flow aloft will bring unsettled weather, more cloud than sun with a slight chance of a shower after noon. A weak cold front will bring periods of light precipitation on Tuesday in a cool Westerly flow aloft. Rain should stop by Tuesday night with mostly dry cloudy weather into Wednesday. Unsettled Thursday with mostly cloudy skies, some breaks and likely some afternoon showers. Mostly cloudy Friday and Saturday with a trough from an Aleutian low bringing periods of light rain Saturday night into Sunday. Will be posting every Monday throughout the summer months, hard to forecast for a week but it worked out fairly well last year. Still siding with the European models, will see how well they stand up to a weekly prediction. Guesstimates: 0-trace by Tuesday morning, 6-12 mm by Wednesday morning, 0-trace by Thursday morning, 1-2 mm by Friday morning, 0-trace by Saturday morning, 2-6 mm by Sunday morning, 2-6 mm by Monday morning.


    GOES IR image from this am.


     Weak high for today with more cloud than sun. 





    Fronts along the coast.


     Low will send a weak cold front our way Tuesday.





     Low and high will bring cloudy skies for Wednesday. Chance the high may bring some sunny breaks.




Looks like the low will still be in control on Thursday. Have to go with unsettled, mostly cloudy.


    This model has the high winning, but will likely be cloudy on Thursday, possible breaks.

   Long way away, but Euro models are saying cloudy for Friday as well. 

    Low will be the main influencer for Saturday, going with cloudy dry weather.

    Low will bring periods of light rain on Sunday.
