Weather Discussion for Monday Dec. 28, 2020

 Normal high/ low temperatures for Dec 28-Jan 4  (high/low) Redding 53/35, Chico 53/34, Quincy 44/22, Chester 39/18, Susanville 39/19, Grass Valley 52/31, Weaverville 45/27, Mt. Shasta 42/25, Yreka 42/24, Alturas 40/14

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 is now moving into Central and Southern California.  This system will bring light rain today from Chico southward with partly cloudy to partly sunny skies north of Chico.  Tuesday we will see partly to mostly sunny skies with near normal temperatures and light north winds.

Wednesday afternoon and early Thursday a weak low pressure trough will move across Northern California.  This system will bring light precipitation to the area with snow levels 3000 to 4000 feet.  

There will be a short break between systems Thursday afternoon and early Friday.  Starting Friday afternoon we begin to move into what could be a very wet pattern.  The jetstream will become well established across the Pacific and move into Northern California (see map below).  This will usher a series of frontal systems across the north state.  The first system will be move through late Friday with light precipitation.  Snow levels will be 4000 to 5000 feet.  A stronger storm hits the area late Saturday and Sunday and then still stronger systems late Monday and again on Wednesday.  Models are in agreement on the development of this wet pattern...lets hope they are right.
