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 frontal system is moving into the Pacific Northwest and the southern end will move across the north end of the state today. This system will bring clouds to the north with light rain or showers on then north coast and over Trinity, Siskiyou, and Shasta counties. Sunday high pressure will begin to build along the coast. There will be a few lingering clouds near the Oregon border but the rest of the north state will be sunny and warmer.
Monday a strong high pressure ridge will be along the west coast (see map below) and will hold there for at least the next week. Northern California will have clear skies with daytime temperatures 12 to 18 degrees above normal. Gusty north to northeast winds will occur Monday and Tuesday and again Thursday through Saturday.
