High pressure will continue over of just off the west coast for the next week and the the inland areas of the north state will continue to see sunny skies. Temperatures today and Thursday will be normal or slightly above. Temperatures will start to warm Friday and Saturday and Sunday high temperatures will be 8 to 12 degrees above normal. Winds will be light today and early Thursday. Thursday night through midday Sunday we will have strong and gusty north winds especially in the Northern Sacramento Valley.
Early next week a low pressure trough will push into western Canada (see map below). The north state will still have mostly clear skies, but temperatures will cool back to near normal.
