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.

High pressure is along the coast and today will be sunny and warmer with light wind.  Tuesday the sunny weather will continue. 

Things begin to change Wednesday.   This morning's satellite picture (below) shows a low pressure area to our west.  This system is stationary but will begin to move east Tuesday.  This system will weaken but will still bring rain to Northern California Wednesday evening and early Thursday.  Snow levels will be around 5000 feet.  Thursday afternoon and Friday skies will be partly cloudy with isolated mountains showers. 

Clouds start increasing again Saturday and by Sunday a large low pressure trough will be along the west coast (see map below).   This system will send a series of frontal systems across the north state.   The first will bring rain to the area Sunday with the wet weather continuing through late Tuesday.   Snow levels Sunday will be 5000 to 6000 feet but will lower early next week.
