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 has weakened. This morning's satellite picture (below) shows frontal systems are moving by to our north. Today through Saturday the north state will be partly to mostly sunny with a few clouds at times from the systems moving by to our north. Temperatures will be above normal and winds will be light.
Sunday a slightly stronger low pressure trough and frontal system will move through the area (see map below). This system will bring clouds and cooler temperatures to the area. Light rain or showers will occur along the coast north of Fort Bragg, the valley could see a few light sprinkles from Redding northward, the Sierra will see showers north of Plumas county.
Monday the high pressure trough pops back up and we will have another 3 to 5 days of sunny mild weather.
