The weak upper level low pressure area is still over the Southwestern U.S. and is moving slowly eastward. Today and Sunday we will still have enough moisture and instability in the atmosphere to generate afternoon cumulus clouds over the mountains with isolated thunderstorms. Temperatures today and Sunday will be 5 to 10 degrees above normal.
Monday and Tuesday high pressure will be along the coast. The north state will be mostly clear with afternoon clouds over the mountains. Temperatures will continue above normal and winds will be light.
Wednesday and Thursday a low pressure trough will move through the Pacific Northwest and western Canada (see map below). The only affect this system will have on Northern California is a few clouds in the far north and temperatures will cool back to near normal.
Friday through the weekend looks mostly clear with above normal temperatures.
