This blog will be issued every Monday morning and updated if the weather is changing or critical or interesting weather events are occurring.
The strong high pressure is still over the western U.S. Today and Thursday we will be sunny with temperatures about like yesterday or a little hotter. There will continue to be afternoon and evening thunderstorms along the Sierra Crest south of Lake Tahoe. Friday the high will begin to slowly weaken and next week we will be under a weather pattern like the one shown on the map below. Not a big change from the current pattern but temperatures will cool back to normal or a few degrees above. Skies will continue sunny...except for a chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms, Friday through Sunday, over Modoc, eastern Lassen, and eastern Plumas counties. Winds will be light.
