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.
A strong high pressure ridge is just to our east. There is a little sub tropical moisture moving northward around the west side of the high and this will bring isolated thunderstorms this afternoon and evening along and east of the Sierra Cascade Crest. Temperatures today will be about like yesterday or a couple of degrees cooler. Southerly winds will increase this afternoon.
Tuesday the high pressure ridge will shift a little westward and will remain over the western U.S. through at least early next week (see map below). Tuesday through the weekend the inland areas of the north state will be sunny with daytime temperatures 4 to 8 degrees above normal. This means more 100 degree readings for the north valley.
