An upper level low pressure area has formed off the Southern California coast (see satellite picture below). The southerly flow in front of this low is pushing clouds over Northern California. Today the north state will be partly cloudy with a few light showers over the higher elevations. Temperatures will be a few degrees below normal and winds will be light.
Tuesday through Thursday the low will still be off the Southern California coast but the moisture being pushed northward will be less. We will see mostly sunny skies with some clouds over the mountains. Temperatures will be 4 to 8 degrees above normal and winds will be light.
Friday temperatures will cool a little and clouds will increase as a low pressure trough approaches the coast. This trough will pass across Northern California Saturday and Sunday (see map below). Not a lot of moisture with this system. Look for partly cloudy skies with a few showers and thunderstorms over the foothills and mountains with the chance of a light shower in the north end of the valley.
Monday there could be a few lingering showers over the areas north and east of the valley with sunny skies elsewhere. Tuesday through the end of the week look sunny with slightly above normal temperatures.
