Weather Discussion for Monday December 17, 2018

Normal high/ low temperatures for Dec 17-Dec 24  (high/low) Redding 55/36, Chico 53/35, Quincy 45/24, Chester 41/20, Susanville 40/22, Grass Valley 52/31, Weaverville 46/29, Mt. Shasta 434/24, Yreka 43/25, Alturas 41/17

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 storm that brought rain to the area has now moved east.   Today we will see partly cloudy to partly sunny skies with some isolated mountain showers this morning.  Tuesday through Saturday we will be under a weather pattern like the one shown on the map below.  The jetstream will run across the Pacific and enter the coast near the California border. This means we will have frontal systems pass across Northern California but they will be weak.  The next system will be Tuesday and will bring light rain or showers to the coast and coastal mountains, areas from Redding northward, and north of Mt Lassen over the areas east of the valley. Snow levels will be 4000 to 5000 feet.  There will be a break Wednesday and then late Thursday and early Friday another weak front will bring scattered light showers to the north state with snow levels near 5000 feet. 

A slightly stronger storm system is due in late Saturday and Sunday and then a colder system may drops southward over the area early next week.
