Weather Discussion for Monday April 30, 2018

Normal high and low temperatures for April 30-May 7  (high/low) Redding 79/52, Chico 79/49, Quincy 70/36, Chester 65/32, Susanville 66/37, Grass Valley 68/44, Weaverville 73/38, Mt. Shasta 66/38, Yreka 69/37, Alturas 66/32

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 area is now over Southern Oregon and is continuing to move slowly eastward.  Today there will be some clouds and a few showers over higher elevations north and east of the valley.   The rest of the area will be partly to mostly sunny with slightly warmer temperatures.

Tuesday high pressure builds along and over the west coast and will hold there through at least Friday (see map below).   Skies will be sunny and temperatures will be above normal by Wednesday.  Gusty north winds are expected Tuesday and early Wednesday.

Saturday and Sunday the high will weaken slightly as a weak upper level low pressure area brushes the north end of the state.  This low could trigger a few thunderstorms over the northern and eastern mountains.
