A cold low pressure trough is to our east with a high pressure ridge off the coast (see satellite picture below).  The low will move eastward later today and Tuesday.   Today will be sunny with below normal temperatures.  The strong and gusty northeast winds will decrease a little late today and then end by late Tuesday.  

The high pressure ridge will move back over the west coast late Tuesday and remain there for the next week.  Skies will be clear.  Daytime temperatures will be back to 10 to 15 degrees above normal and winds will be relatively light.

Sunny today with temperatures above normal.  Winds will be light this morning but will be increasing from the southwest to northwest in the afternoon.  High pressure is off the coast.  The low pressure area shown on this morning's satellite picture (below) over western Canada will move into Nevada Sunday and then move eastward late Monday and Tuesday.  This low will cool temperatures back to near normal Sunday and Monday.  The main feature will be the winds.  Sunday and Monday we will have very strong and gusty northeast to east winds over all Northern California with gusts 50 to 60 mph in some areas.  The winds will begin to decrease late Monday and will end by late Tuesday.

Wednesday through the weekend high pressure will be over our area (see map below).   We will see clear skies with a few clouds late Friday and Saturday from a front passing by to our north.  Temperatures will 12 to 18 degrees above normal Wednesday and Thursday and then cool a few degrees Friday and Saturday.  Winds will be relatively light.
