Weather Discussion for Wednesday August 8, 2018

Normal high and low temperatures for Aug 6-Aug 13  (high/low) Redding 99/65, Chico 96/59, Quincy 90/43, Chester 86/45, Susanville 89/50, Grass Valley 89/56, Weaverville 95/49, Mt. Shasta 86/50, Yreka 92/52, Alturas 89/42

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 be a problem in may areas.  The smoke may improve somewhat Friday and Saturday afternoons. 

High pressure continues over the west.  The low pressure area to our west over the Pacific continues stationary. The low will start moving northeastward later today and will pass through the Pacific Northwest and western Canada late Friday and Saturday (see map below).  Temperatures today and Thursday will be about like yesterday or a little warmer.  Friday through the weekend we will see few degrees of cooling.  Light to moderate south winds are expect in the afternoon and evening today and Thursday with gusty southwest to northwest winds Friday.  

Next week we will be back under the high pressure ridge for above normal temperatures and relatively light winds.  One thing to watch is moisture from one of the hurricane getting pulled northward late in the week.

  1. Any thoughts when this High may show signs of breaking down. Worst summer ever.

  2. No sign of it breaking down very much until the end of the month. The thing to watch is moisture nest week from dying hurricanes...
