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.
This morning's satellite picture (below) shows a low pressure area moving through the Pacific Northwest with the southern end of the front associated with it brushing the north end of California. The far north end of the state will see a few clouds today with a chance of a shower over Siskiyou and Modoc counties. Temperatures today will be normal to slightly below with gusty north winds in some areas. Another weak front will brush the north end of the state late Thursday and early Friday with a chance of showers over Siskiyou and Modoc counties. Once this system passes strong and gusty north to northeast winds are expected. The winds will last through early Sunday. Temperatures Thursday and Friday will be near normal and then slightly above normal on the weekend.
Sunday through the mid part of next week a weak high pressure ridge will be over state (see map below). The north state will be mostly sunny with temperatures a few degrees above normal.
A low pressure trough will move through our area next Wednesday. This system will bring showers to the north coast and far north end of the state.
