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.
A large high pressure area is over the U.S. and will get stronger during the next week (see map below). The inland areas of Northern California will be mostly clear with temperatures warming to 5 to 10 degrees above normal by midweek. Winds will be light.
Thursday through the weekend afternoon and evening thunderstorms are possible over the mountains as subtropical moisture is pulled northward around the westside of the high pressure area.
