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 frontal system approaching the coast (see satellite picture below) is splitting apart.  The southern portion will move into Oregon tonight and will be over Nevada by Sunday night and then off the Southern California coast by Monday night.  This system will bring a few very light showers to the mountains tonight and early Sunday.  Snow levels will be high.  Temperatures will continue above normal today and Sunday Gusty north winds will move into the area tonight and continue through Monday.

The large scale weather pattern changes late Sunday and Monday.  The high pressure ridge moves from just to our east over the western U.S. to just to our west off the coast (see map below).  This changes our weather from dry, above normal temperatures, and mostly light winds to dry, near normal temperatures and more periods of gusty north  winds.   We will see a few clouds as storms move into western Canada and then drop southeastward into the Great Basin.  Temperatures will be above normal through midweek and then cool to near normal by the weekend.  Gusty north winds end late Monday but then startup again late Wednesday and continue through Friday.
