Weather Discussion for Saturday December 16, 2017

Normal high and low temperatures for Dec 11-Dec 18  (high/low)...Redding 55/36, Chico 56/36, Quincy 45/24, Chester 42/21, Susanville 41/22, Grass Valley 54/31, Weaverville 47/29, Mt. Shasta 45/25, Yreka 44/25, Alturas 43/18

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 weak frontal system that brushed the north state yesterday is now to our east.  High pressure is back along the coast.  Today through Monday we will see sunny skies with above normal daytime temperatures.  Gusty north winds will continue until midday Monday. 

Late Tuesday and Wednesday a cold but relatively dry low pressure area will slide southward along the coast and across Northern California.  This system will bring light showers to the foothills and mountains with snow levels 3000 to 4000 feet.

Thursday through the weekend we will be under a weather pattern like the one shown the map below.  The strong high pressure ridge is still there, but it has shifted westward slightly.  Note the jetstream running north to south over Northern California.  This will bring strong gusty north winds to our area.  Thursday through the weekend...clear....mild days...strong north winds.
