Weather Discussion for Wednesday June 20, 2018

Normal high and low temperatures for June 18-June 25  (high/low) Redding 92/63, Chico 91/58, Quincy 83/42, Chester 80/42, Susanville 82/47, Grass Valley 82/53, Weaverville 87/45, Mt. Shasta 80/47, Yreka 84/48, Alturas 81/41

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 is over the western U.S. and off the coast.   Today a weak frontal system is moving across the Pacific Northwest and western Canada.   The southern end of this system will bring few clouds to the far north end of the state and could trigger a few thunderstorms near the Oregon border.  The rest of the north state will be sunny with temperatures a little cooler.  South to southwest winds will increase this afternoon.

The high pressure ridge will strengthen over the next few days and dominate our weather for the next week (see map below).  Thursday through next week will be mostly clear and hot with temperatures 8 to 12 degrees above normal by the weekend. Looks like the first "hot spell" of the summer.  Winds will light except for gusty north winds Friday and early Saturday.
