High pressure will continue over our area today and and most of Sunday.   Temperatures will continue above normal with light winds.   Late Sunday the high pressure ridge will begin to shift back to the west and a very weak and dry frontal system will pass through late Sunday and early Monday. This system will have a few clouds and maybe a light shower on the north coast and along the Oregon border.  Monday we will have partly to mostly sunny skies with gusty north winds and near normal temperatures.

A very cold low pressure area will drop south from the Gulf of Alaska and will be off the Northern California coast Tuesday afternoon and evening and over Northern California Wednesday (see map below) clouds will increase Tuesday with periods of rain Tuesday night and Wednesday.  Snow levels will be 1000 to 1500 feet from Redding northward and 2000 to 2500 feet to  the south.  Precipitation amounts will be light in the valley with heavier amounts in the higher elevations. Thursday the low will be moving eastward.  Skies will be partly cloudy with scattered showers over the foothills and mountains with isolated showers possible in the valley.  Snow levels will continue low.   Skies will be clearing Thursday night.  Cold temperatures are expected Thursday night with freezing temperatures in the north valley.

Friday through the weekend look sunny with cool days and continued cold nights.
