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.

Note I will try and answer any questions in the comment section when I see them.  Sometimes they get lost.  There was a question Saturday about the high pressure over the southwestern U.S.  It was in response to the deep Gulf low and strong southwest flow ahead of it and has now broken down.

The low pressure trough is now east of our area.  There will be a few snow flurries this morning over the Sierra Cascade Crest but they will end by afternoon.  The rest of the north state will be partly to mostly sunny.

Tuesday afternoon and evening the trough and frontal system shown on this morning's satellite picture (below) in the Gulf of Alaska will brush the north end of the state.   We will see some clouds from this system with a few showers over Siskiyou, Modoc, and Lassen counties.  This is a rapid moving system and will be east of our area by Wednesday morning. 

Wednesday and Thursday we will have mostly sunny skies with slightly above normal temperatures and gusty north winds.  Clouds begin to increase Friday afternoon as the next low pressure trough approaches the coast.  This system will bring light rain to the area Saturday (see map below).  Snow levels will be 5000 to 6000 feet.  Sunday and early next week look clear and mild.
