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 along the Northern California and Southern Oregon coast and is moving slowly east-southeastward. This system will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms to the foothills and mountains of Northern California today with isolated activity in the valley north of Red Bluff. Sunday the showers and thunderstorms will be over higher elevations north and east of Redding with a slight chance of one dropping across the far north end of the valley. Monday most areas will be partly to mostly sunny but there will still be a few lingering showers along and east of the Sierra Cascade Crest.
Tuesday through next weekend high pressure will be back along and over the west coast (see map below). During this time we will have sunny skies with above normal temperatures. Gusty north winds will occur Tuesday and Wednesday.
