Well finally some changes in the weather to talk about. High pressure is still along the coast and today and Sunday the inland areas of Northern California will be sunny with temperatures near to slightly above normal. Winds will be light.
Monday the high will shift westward as a low pressure trough begins to deepen along the west coast. This trough will be along the coast through Wednesday (see map below). Clouds will begin to increase Monday...Tuesday and Wednesday the north state will be partly cloudy to partly sunny with scattered showers and thunderstorms over the coastal mountains north of Clear Lake, the areas north of Redding, and the Sierra/Cascades from Plumas county northward. There is a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the valley from Chio northward. Temperatures will cool to 10 to 15 degrees below normal by Wednesday. Gusty south winds will occur Monday and Tuesday afternoons with gusty southwest to northwest winds Wednesday,
The trough will be just to our east Friday and Saturday. Skies will be mostly sunny except for lingering clouds over the northern mountains. Temperatures will be below normal with gusty north to northwest winds.
