High pressure is over the west but is weakening. Today and Tuesday Northern California will be partly to mostly sunny with a few mid and high clouds. Temperatures will be a few degrees above normal and winds will be light.
The high breaks down Wednesday and late Wednesday and Thursday a low pressure trough and frontal system will move through the area (see map below). This system will bring light rain or showers to the higher elevations with the chance of a light shower in the valley. Increasing south to southwest winds will precede the front. Late Friday and Saturday another trough will brush the north state. Once again it looks like precipitation will be light and mostly over the higher elevations.
Late Sunday high pressure rebuilds along and over the west coast. This should make next week sunny with above normal temperatures. Gusty north winds will occur Sunday and Monday.
