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 has moved east. Today will be partly cloudy to partly sunny with near normal temperatures. This morning's satellite picture (below) shows the next frontal system dropping southeastward from the Gulf of Alaska. Precipitation from this system will reach the north state Sunday afternoon and evening with periods of rain or showers Monday and early Tuesday. Snow levels will drop to 4000 to 5000 feet by Monday afternoon.
Tuesday we will see partly cloudy skies with a few snow flurries over the higher elevations. The next low pressure trough and frontal system reaches the north coast early Wednesday and will spread rain and snow across the area Wednesday. Snow levels will be 4000 feet north and 5000 feet south. The precipitation turns to showers early Thursday and ends by Thursday afternoon.
There will be a brief break Thursday afternoon and Friday and then more rain by the weekend.
