Weather Discussion for Monday January 28, 2019

Normal high/ low temperatures for Jan 28-Feb 4  (high/low) Redding 59/38, Chico 57/37, Quincy 48/24, Chester 45/21, Susanville 43/23, Grass Valley 56/31, Weaverville 52/29, Mt. Shasta 47/27, Yreka 47/25, Alturas 43/16

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.

A high pressure ridge is still off the coast but there are lots of mid and high clouds moving through it.  Over the next few days the ridge will shift back to the west.  This will allow low pressure troughs and frontal systems to drop southward along the coast and over Northern California.  These systems will start off weak but get stronger toward the end of the week and the weekend. 

The frist weak system will bring a few light mountains showers to the area Tuesday with a similar system Wednesday.  Stronger systems will move through Thursday afternoon and Friday and over the weekend (see map below).  These storms should bring light to moderate precipitation to all of Northern California.  Snow levels start out Thursday 4500 to 5500 north and little higher south.  Snow levels will drop by Friday and the weekend 3000 north and 4000 feet south
