Weather Discussion for Monday April 23, 2018

Normal high and low temperatures for April 23-April 30  (high/low) Redding 75/50, Chico 75/47, Quincy 67/34, Chester 61/30, Susanville 64/35, Grass Valley 66/42, Weaverville 70/36, Mt. Shasta 62/ 36, Yreka 67/36, Alturas 63/31

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.

High pressure continues over the west coast.  Today through Wednesday we will see mostly sunny skies with above normal temperatures. 

In the Saturday blog I discussed the formation of a closed or cutoff low.   This morning's satellite picture (below) shows a frontal system out in the Pacific that is stretched north to south.   The low will form on southern end of this front and the drift slowly eastward.   This low will be nearing the coast by Friday and over the north state Saturday and Sunday (see map below).  Thursday we will see afternoon clouds with showers and thunderstorms over the mountains.  Friday through the weekend we will see partly cloudy skies with scattered showers and thunderstorms mainly over the foothills and mountains but with isolated activity possible in the valley.  Temperatures will cool to below normal by Friday and remain there through the weekend.

Skies clear out and temperatures return to normal Monday and Tuesday.
