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.
Looking at the morning satellite picture and forecast weather map for next week (both below) you can see that not much change is expected in our large scale weather pattern. The inland areas of Northern California will be sunny and hot with temperatures 5 to 10 degrees above normal. We will have periodic surges of monsoonal or subtropical moisture move northward and these will trigger thunderstorms over the mountains. One of these surges will trigger mountains thunderstorms today and Sunday with another batch of moisture expected move northward next Friday and Saturday. There is a chance of a thunderstorm moving over the north end of the valley tomorrow (Sunday).
