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 low pressure trough has developed in the Gulf of Alaska and is moving eastward.   The trough has generated several frontal systems which will pass through Northern California Tuesday through Thursday.   The first of these systems will move through Tuesday with rain and gusty south winds.  Snow levels will be 5000 to 6000 feet.  The precipitation will turn to showers Tuesday night.  The next system moves through Wednesday and early Thursday with more rain and gusty south winds.  The snow level will be a little lower...4000 feet in the north and 5000 feet south.  Thursday afternoon the rain turns to scattered showers. 

Friday there will be a break between storms and the north state will be partly cloudy to  partly sunny.  A colder low pressure area will move through our area Saturday (see map below).  This system will bring more rain and gusty winds.  Snow levels will be 3000 feet north and 4000 feet south.  Sunday and Monday a weak high pressure ridge will bring drying to the north state.
