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.
The low pressure trough that brought rain to our area yesterday is now moving east. There is still rain and showers occurring east of the valley but it will be ending during the day. Snow levels will be 4500 to 5000 feet. The valley and areas west of the valley will be partly sunny today.
Sunday a weak low pressure trough will move through with light rain or showers over the foothills and mountains and in the valley north of Red Bluff. Snow levels will be 4000 feet and precipitation amounts will be light.
Monday and Tuesday the north state will have partly sunny to partly cloudy skies with near normal temperatures. Winds will be light.
Wednesday and Thursday a low pressure area will be along and over the west coast (see map below). This system will send bands of clouds and rain across Northern California with snow levels 4500 to 5500 feet north and 6500 feet south. Gusty south winds are expected Wednesday and Thursday.
The precipitation ends and skies will be clear Friday with partly cloudy to partly sunny skies Friday afternoon through Saturday. Another low pressure area will move into the area late Sunday and Monday.
