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.
This morning's satellite picture (below) shows a frontal system moving toward the coast. Most of the energy of this system will be pushed to our north. However, we will see clouds increase later today with light rain or showers north of a line from Ukiah to Redding to Mt. Lassen on Sunday. Clouds will be clearing out Monday as high pressure rebuilds along the coast. Tuesday through next weekend another strong high pressure ridge will be along the coast (see map below). Temperatures today will cool to normal or a little below Sunday and Monday and then back above normal Tuesday through the weekend. Gusty north winds will occur from Tuesday afternoon through midday Friday.
