The low pressure area is now along the coast and will move across Northern and Central California today.  The low will trigger showers and possible thunderstorms today with locally heavy rainfall.  The showers will taper off tonight.  Tuesday the north state will be partly cloudy with isolated showers over the higher elevations.  There is an chance of an isolated light shower over the north end of the valley.  Temperatures will be below normal.  

Wednesday through Friday a weak high pressure ridge will be along the coast (see map below).  Skies will be mostly sunny with a few mid and high clouds.  Temperatures will warm to near normal.  Gusty north winds will occur Friday.  

Saturday the high pressure ridge along the coast will strengthen and a strong high pressure ridge will be over the west coast at least through the mid part of next week.  Skies will be clear and temperatures will be above normal.
