This blog will be issued every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday morning and updated if the weather is changing or critical or interesting weather events are occurring.

The low pressure area moved into Northern California last night and is now moving eastward.  There are still some showers over the mountains but they will be ending during the day and skies will be clearing.  Tuesday will be sunny and cool with gusty north winds. 

Clouds increase Wednesday as a low pressure trough deepens along the west coast.  This trough will be along the coast from late Wednesday through Friday (see map below).  During this time Northern California will get periods of rain, heavy at times, and gusty south winds. Snow levels will start out 1500 to 2500 feet north and 3000 to 3500 feet south Wednesday night and then rise up a little Thursday.   Snow levels will drop Thursday night and Friday to 1000 to 1500 feet north and 2000 to 2500 feet south.   Saturday the low will begin to move eastward and the precipitation will turn to showers.  Snow levels will continue low.

Sunday and Monday will be partly to mostly sunny and then another storm is expected by midweek.
