The good news is the high pressure area is weakening and the winds are decreasing. A massive layer of smoke covers much of California this morning. The picture below shows the northern section of the state. Northeast California is clear and the rest is covered by smoke.
Today and Tuesday if you are in the clear areas temperatures will be above normal if you are under the smoke near normal. Northeast to east winds will be decreasing today and tonight most of the northstate will see light winds with east winds down the canyons east of the valley.
Wednesday through Saturday we will see clear or smoky skies. Temperatures will be normal to a few degrees above by the end of the week. Winds will be light.
Sunday the high pressure area weakens further and shifts eastward as a low pressure trough approaches the coast. This trough will move through the Pacific Northwest Monday and Tuesday (see map below). The trough will bring clouds to the north state with a few light showers possible over the north coast and across Siskiyou county. Southwest winds will begin to increase Sunday with gusty southwest expected Monday afternoon.
Wednesday we return to clear skies and slightly above normal temperature.
