The clouds over Northern California this morning are from the weak low pressure trough that is moving into western Canada and the Pacific Northwest (see satellite picture below). This system could trigger an isolated shower or thunderstorm in the far north end of the state later today. A slightly stronger low pressure trough or frontal system will move through the Pacific Northwest late Sunday and Monday (see map below). This trough will bring a few clouds to the area and could trigger some showers or thunderstorms over the areas north of Redding, Monday and early Tuesday. Gusty south winds will precede this trough. Temperatures today through Tuesday will be a few degrees below normal.
Wednesday through next weekend a weak high pressure ridge will push over our area. We will mostly sunny skies with temperatures back to near or a few degrees above normal. Winds will be light.
