The weather roller coaster....cool/wet...warm/dry...cool/wet...will continue for the next week.
This morning the low pressure area is along the coast and will move across Northern California today. The low is triggering showers and thunderstorms as it moves northward. The showers will diminish in the late afternoon and evening. Gusty south winds will occur at times today.
Sunday this low will be out of the area but another very weak upper level low pressure area will form off the coast. This low will sink southward and be off the Southern California coast by Monday (see map below). Sunday and Monday the foothills and mountains will be partly cloudy with isolated showers. The valley will be sunny with a few clouds. Temperatures will be below normal. Winds will be light.
Wednesday through midday Friday a high pressure ridge will be back over our area. The northstate will be mostly sunny and temperatures will be a few degrees above normal. Winds will be light.
Late Friday the high pressure ridge will be weakening as a low pressure trough approaches the coast. This low will pass across Northern California Saturday with more rain and showers.
