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.
What's left of the cold low pressure area is still off the Oregon and Northern California coast. This system will move slowly eastward today. Showers will continue through this evening. Snow levels will be 1000 to 1500 feet in the north and 2000 to 3000 feet south. There is still some trapped cold air from Redding northward so we could see a few snow flakes in Redding.
Skies will be clearing Sunday as a weak high pressure ridge develops over the western U.S. Monday and Tuesday look partly to mostly sunny with normal or slightly above normal temperatures.
Wednesday through early Saturday we will be under a weather pattern like the one shown below. Weak high pressure to east and a low pressure trough off the coast. During this time we will see several weak troughs or frontal systems pass across the north state. These systems will bring scattered light rain and showers to our area with snow levels around 5000 feet.
