SOME INCREASING CLOUDS AFTER MIDNIGHT.  
 
AN UPPER RIDGE WILL MOVE IN FROM THE WEST THURSDAY PROVIDING A  
WARMER DAY UNDER A RETURN SOUTHERLY FLOW AT THE SURFACE.  
 
AN UPPER LOW AND ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT WILL APPROACH FROM THE WEST  
THIS WEEKEND. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL APPROACH FROM THE
