Cooler weather is on the way.  The high pressure ridge that has been over California is moving westward.  This morning there is a low pressure trough over western Canada that will drop southward today into the Pacific Northwest and then move eastward Sunday.  The main affect this system will have on our weather is cooling and wind.  Today will be sunny with cooler, but still above normal temperatures,  Gusty southwest to northwest winds will occur in some areas this afternoon and evening.  Sunday looks sunny with temperatures a few degrees below normal.  Strong and gusty north winds will occur Sunday.   Monday the temperatures will be below normal with the gusty north winds continuing until evening.

Tuesday the high pressure ridge tries to rebuild over the west.  However, another low pressure area will be over Western Canada and this will stop high from pushing northward (see map below)..  Tuesday through next week looks mostly clear with temperatures bouncing from a couple degrees below to a couple of degrees above normal.  Southwest winds will occur in the afternoon.

  1. we seem to be having a lot of low pressures dropping over Northern Ca bringing cool weather and lots of windy days. Is this weather pattern unseasonable for this time of year?

  2. Yes, for the past several months there has been quite a few cutoff low dropping south. A few months ago they went off the coast and into Southern Calif.
