The low pressure area off the Northern California coast is beginning to move slowly southward and will move inland over Southern California by midweek. Today Northern California will have partly cloudy skies with scattered showers mainly over the foothills and mountains. The valley should be partly to mostly sunny by afternoon.
Tuesday there will be be clouds and a few showers along and east of the Sierra Cascade Crest with partly to mostly sunny skies elsewhere. Temperatures will be warming but still below normal. Gusty north winds will move into the area.
Wednesday through the weekend a high pressure ridge will be along and off the west coast (see map below). Skies will be mostly clear. Temperatures will be 8 to 12 degrees above normal. Gusty north winds will continue through Thursday afternoon.
The ridge looks like it will pull back to the west Monday and this could allow another low pressure area to move across the north state next Tuesday.
