 Normal high and low temperatures for Jan 2-Jan 9 (high/low)...Redding 52/35, Chico 52/34, Quincy 44/22, Chester 40/19, Susanville 38/19, Grass Valley 52/31, Weaverville 45/27, Mt. Shasta 42/25, Yreka 43/24, Alturas 40/14

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.

I will issue a more complete discussion tomorrow morning.

Here is tonights update...The current satellite picture (below) shows a low pressure area approaching the coast from the southwest.  A very cold airmass remains over Northern California.   Therefore, when the two collide we will be dealing....at least for 6 to 12 hours...with areas of trapped cold air from Redding northward.  Precipitation will start across Northern California after midnight and continue through Saturday.   On Sunday the main low pressure area will move across the state with moderate to heavy precipitation.  Snow levels from Redding northward will start out at 500 to 1000 feet.  Snow levels will be rising Saturday afternoon and by Sunday will be over 6000 feet.

The precipitation will turn to showers Monday and end Monday night and then another system will move into the area late Tuesday and Wednesday.
