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.

Note the satellite links will be not quite right until the new satellite is  fully operational.

Cold weather pattern to continue over the west coast this week.   The high pressure ridge is along the coast with the jetstream dropping from Northern Alaska through western Canada and into California.  Low pressure areas dropping southward don't spend much time over the water so their moisture is very limited when they reach our area.  Today and Tuesday will be mostly sunny with clouds over the mountains.   Temperatures will be below normal with locally gusty north winds. 

Wednesday afternoon and early Thursday another storm system will move through the area (see map below).  This system will bring scattered snow showers to the foothills and mountains with a chance of an isolated rain shower in the valley. 

Sunny skies return Friday and then another relatively dry storm will move through  late Saturday and Sunday.
