A note for those of us who like to garden and have already or are thinking about planting. It now looks like much colder weather and possibly wetter weather next weekend.
Today and Sunday Northern California will be mostly sunny with much above normal temperatures. Moderate north winds will occur in many areas.
Monday through Wednesday we will be in a weather pattern like the one shown on the map below. The jetstream will run across the Pacific reaching the coast to our north. This means that frontal systems will be to our north with thier southern end brushing the far north end of the state. One system will move inland late Monday and Tuesday with another one moving through Wednesday. These systems will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies to the areas north of Redding with a few light showers along the north coast and near the Oregon border. The areas from Redding southward will stay partly to mostly sunny with temperatures cooling to normal or a few degrees above. Gusty southwest to northwest winds will occur Tuesday and Wednesday.
Thursday the north state will be sunny with mild temperatures and gusty north winds. Late Friday a cold low pressure area will drop southward from the Gulf of Alaska. This system will spread clouds, precipitation, and colder air over Northern California on the weekend.
