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 that moved across Northern California yesterday is now over the Nevada. The low will linger there today. Later today and early Sunday another low pressure area will drop southward from Canada and merge with the low over Nevada. The combined low pressure areas will then move eastward. Today through midday Sunday there will be a few light showers over the foothills and mountains with the chance of a stray shower over the north end of the valley. Snow levels will be near 5000 feet. West to northwest winds today and then gusty north winds Sunday afternoon through midday Monday.
Skies will be clearing out Sunday evening and temperatures will be cold in the wind sheltered areas. Monday through next weekend we will be under a weather pattern like the one shown on the map below. The jetstream will run across the Pacific and enter the U.S. just north of California. This means that as frontal systems pass by to the north we will see a few clouds and maybe a few showers near the Oregon border. One of these weak fronts will move through Tuesday with another late Thursday and Friday. The days between fronts will be partly to mostly sunny. Temperatures Tuesday through next weekend will be near normal.
