The low pressure area moved slowly across Northern California yesterday and made May 25th feel like March 25th. Some areas received over an inch of rain. The low is now over Nevada and moving eastward. There are a few showers over Butte, Plumas, and Nevada counties this morning but they will be moving east during the day. Skies will be slowly clearing during the day.
Sunday through midday Tuesday high pressure will be over the west coast. Skies will be sunny and temperatures will be rapidly warming. Sunday we will see above normal temperatures and by Monday some areas in the north valley will be in the mid to upper 90's
Late Tuesday and Wednesday the high will weaken as low pressure trough moves through the Pacific Northwest and Northern California (see map below). This system will bring some clouds to the north state with a few showers possible over the areas north of Redding. Temperatures will cool to near normal.
Thursday through the weekend a weak high pressure ridge will be along the coast. The inland areas of the north state will be sunny with normal or slightly above normal temperatures.
