Weather Discussion for Monday December 31, 2018

Normal high/ low temperatures for Dec 31-Jan 7  (high/low) Redding 54/34, Chico 52/34, Quincy 44/22, Chester 40/18, Susanville 38/19, Grass Valley 52/30, Weaverville 45/27, Mt. Shasta 42/25, Yreka 43/24, Alturas 40/14

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.

High pressure ridge continues along the coast and will hold there through Thursday and the slowly weaken.  Northern California will be mostly clear.  Tonight through Wednesday there will be cold temperatures in the wind sheltered valleys.  Gusty north winds will occur in some areas through Tuesday. 

In the Saturday blog I thought we would have a weak system Friday and then stronger one on the weekend.  The models now show the Friday system going inland to our north and the weekend system splitting apart with the southern end moving into Southern California.  The models do differ on this with the GFS (see map below) moving the system into Southern California, while the  European splits the system but brings the southern portion more into Northern and Central California.  Expect we will see some clouds this weekend with showers. 

Both models show a stronger storm system early next week.
