This blog will be issued every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday morning and updated if the weather is changing or critical or interesting weather events are occurring.
This morning's satellite picture shows a lot of clouds and moisture streaming across the Pacific, especially for this time of year. However, high pressure is slowly building along and off our coast and this will push most of this moisture northward.
A weak frontal system is now moving across the north state and this will bring light showers or sprinkles to our area today. Thursday there will be some clouds north of Redding with partly to mostly sunny skies south.
Friday through at least the mid part of next week high pressure will ge along and off the west coast (see map below). We will have sunny skies with above normal temperatures and periods of gusty north winds.
