Weather Discussion for Monday October 15, 2018

Normal high/ low temperatures for Oct 15-Oct 22  (high/low) Redding 79/49, Chico 79/46, Quincy 71/31, Chester 66/30, Susanville 66/34, Grass Valley 72/42, Weaverville 74/34, Mt. Shasta 65/35, Yreka 69/35, Alturas 66/27

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.

The high pressure ridge is still just off the coast.  The map below for the weekend shows a small change as the ridge will move a little east and be over the coast.  The only affect this will have is to stop the periodic north wind outbreaks.  Today through the weekend the north state will be clear.  Temperatures will be above normal.  Gusty northeast to east will occur today and Tuesday with lighter winds after that.

Now for a ray of hope.  The models all show the ridge continuing to move east and weaken.   They also indicate a frontal system moving through between the 22nd and 24th.  One model the European brings system strong enough to bring light precipitation to our area.  The GFS (US) brings a weaker system through.
