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.
We will be dealing with a split jetstream for the next couple of days. The system that I thought would bring a few showers late yesterday and today is now moving inland over southern California. The frontal system you see on the satellite picture below, out to our west will split apart later today and the southern portion will move slowly toward the coast. Monday it will be off the Central California coast and then Monday night and Tuesday it will lift northward over Northern California. Today and Sunday the north state will be partly to mostly sunny with above normal temperatures. Clouds increase Monday and then Tuesday we will have light rain or showers with snow levels will be around 5000 feet.
Wednesday and Thursday a couple of fast moving storms will move across Northern California (see map below), bringing light to moderate rain to our area with snow levels 3500 to 4500 feet north and 5500 feet south. These systems will be preceded by gusty south winds.
Friday and part of Saturday there will be a break and then a weak front will bring showers to the coast and northern mountains.
