This morning's satellite picture (below) shows a low pressure area off the Central California coast. This system is moving slowly north-northeastward and will pass across Northern California Tuesday.  Late tonight and Tuesday Northern California will  see light rain with snow levels 3000 to 4000 feet.

Wednesday and Thursday a stronger low pressure trough will move through the area (see map below).  This system will bring light to moderate rain to the north state with snow levels 3500 to 4500 feet.   Gusty south winds are expected Wednesday.  The precipitation will turn to showers late Thursday and end early Friday.  Late Friday and Saturday we will see partly cloudy to partly sunny skies and then a weak frontal system will pass through Sunday with rain on the coastal and northern mountains and showers elsewhere.  Snow levels will 5000 to 6000 feet. 

A high pressure ridge will be along the coast Monday and should hold there for several days.
