High pressure is over the western U.S. and will hold there for at least the next week (see satellite picture and map below).  There are a few weather features to watch today.  First there will be some cumulus clouds over the mountains north of Redding today with isolated thunderstorms possible over Siskiyou and Modoc counties.  Second, overnight there was a strong push of marine air through the Delta and this morning low clouds extend from the Bay Area to north of Sacramento.  This cooler air will drop the temperatures in the valley today to several degrees below normal.  

Thursday through next week the inland areas of Northern California will be mostly clear.  Temperatures Thursday will be slightly below normal, but will be warming and by the weekend will be 4 to 6 degrees above normal.  Winds will be light.
