Weather Discussion for Saturday August 18, 2018

Normal high and low temperatures for Aug 13-Aug 20  (high/low) Redding 97/62, Chico 94/58, Quincy 88/41, Chester 84/44, Susanville 87/49, Grass Valley 87/55, Weaverville 94/47, Mt. Shasta 85/49, Yreka 90/51, Alturas 87/41

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.

Smoke will continue to a problem for the next week, especially during the night and morning hours.  

High pressure is back over the west and today and Sunday will see temperatures 4 to 8 degrees above normal.  Winds will be light.  Early next week a weak upper level low pressure area will form over Oregon (see map below).  This low will remain relatively stationary until late in the week when it moves northeastward.  The main affect the low will have on our area is to drop temperatures down to normal or slightly above.   Isolated afternoon and evening thunderstorms are possible over Siskiyou and Modoc counties Tuesday and Wednesday.  Light to moderate south to southwest winds will occur in the afternoon.

The extended forecast still look dry through the end of the month.
