The low pressure area is moving across the Pacific Northwest this morning. The southern end of this system is bringing a few clouds to the far north end of the state and there could be a few showers today near the Oregon border. The rest of the north state will be partly to mostly sunny with temperatures a little warmer. Light to moderate southwest to northwest winds will occur this afternoon.
Tomorrow the high pressure area begins to move back over the western U.S and by the weekend we will once again have a strong high pressure area sitting over the western U.S. and it should hold there through next week. (see map below). The inland areas of the north state will be sunny with temperatures warming to 8 to 12 degrees above normal by the weekend. It looks like we could see some sub tropical moisture move northward by Sunday with a chance of mountain thunderstorms Sunday and Monday afternoons. Gusty north winds will occur Thursday and Friday.
