The cutoff low pressure area is off the coast and is drifting slowly eastward. The low will move across the Pacific Northwest Thursday. This system will bring some clouds a isolated showers and thunderstorms to the areas north of Redding today and Thursday. The low will bring cooler air into Northern California with high temperatures today and Thursday 10 to 12 degrees below normal. Gusty southwest to northwest winds will occur in the afternoon.
Friday through early next week another weaker cutoff will be over the Pacific Northwest and Canada (see map below). This low will keep out temperatures a few degrees below normal through early next week.
It looks like by mid part of next week the off shore high pressure area will be strong enough to warm things back to at least normal.
