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.
Today and and Thursday Northern California will be partly cloudy to partly sunny with continued cold night time temperatures. Friday the low pressure area shown in the Gulf of Alaska on this morning's satellite picture (below) will move through the north state. This will be followed Saturday and Sunday by another cold low pressure area (see map below). Snow levels with these systems will be 1000 to 1500 feet north and 2000 to 2500 feet south. Due to trapped cold air in the canyons the snow level will be locally 500 feet from Redding northward Friday and Saturday. The precipitation will turn to showers Sunday afternoon and end Monday during the day.
Sunny over the valley with a few clouds in the mountains Tuesday and Wednesday and then another storm is possible Thursday and Friday.
