A weak upper level low pressure area is over Northern California and has triggered a few light showers over the higher elevations. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will occur today over the foothills and mountains with isolated activity possible in the valley.
Sunday the low will be to our east. Sunday afternoon through Friday high pressure will be over the western U..S. (see map below). During this time the north state will be sunny with daytime temperatures 12 to 16 degrees above normal. There will be periods of gusty north winds.
Temperatures will cool on the weekend as the high pressure ridge weakens.
