This morning's satellite picture shows another frontal system headed toward the coast.  This pattern of a low pressure trough and frontal system every couple of days will continue for the next 7 to 10 days (see map below).

Today Northern California will be partly cloudy to cloudy with a few light showers mainly over the higher elevations.  Snow levels will be 5000 feet.  Tuesday afternoon the next front moves inland.   We will see locally moderate rain with snow levels 5000 feet north and 6500 feet south.  Gusty south winds are expected late Tuesday and Wednesday.

Thursday and early Friday the north state will be partly cloudy to cloudy.   Late Friday and Saturday another storm will move through with gusty winds and more rain.  Snow levels will be around 4000 feet north and 5000 feet south.  Another frontal system will come through  late Saturday and Sunday with more rain and snow levels 4000 north and 5000 feet south.   These fronts will preceded by gusty south winds. 

It looks like another storm system will hit about next Tuesday.
