A low pressure trough is currently passing through the Pacific Northwest and the north end of California. This system will bring a few light showers to north coast, Siskiyou, Northern Shasta, Modoc, and Lassen counties through this evening. The trough will bring cooler temperatures and gusty southwest to northwest winds to all of the north state today.
Sunday high pressure begins to rebuild over the west coast. Skies will be mostly clear. Temperatures will warm through Tuesday when temperatures will be 8 to 12 degrees above normal. Winds will be light. Wednesday through Friday the high will move back to the west as a low pressure trough develops over the Great Basin and the Central U.S. (see map below). We will still have mostly clear skies but temperatures will cool back to near normal by Friday. Gusty north winds will begin Friday.
The weekend looks sunny and warmer with the gusty north winds ending by Sunday morning.
