Weather Discussion for Wednesday Dec. 2, 2020

 Normal high/ low temperatures for Nov 30-Dec 7  (high/low) Redding 58/38, Chico 58/37, Quincy 49/26, Chester 45/23, Susanville 46/25, Grass Valley 55/33, Weaverville 50/30, Mt. Shasta 46/26, Yreka 48/27, Alturas 46/20

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.

Frontal systems will continue to move across the Pacific and then hit the high pressure ridge that is over the western U.S..  Most of these storms will be shunted to the north with only a few mid and high clouds moving across Northern California.  The system Saturday (see map below)  may be strong enough to bring a few light showers to the north coast and near the Oregon border.  This system will be followed by another round of strong and gusty north winds Sunday through Tuesday.  The next week looks mostly sunny except some clouds Saturday. Daytime temperatures will continue above normal.

  1. Looks like this season is already shaping up to be a dry one. These ridges seem like they are doing the same as last year. Very disappointing. Seems like this weather pattern is the norm than the exception and I think our energies need to be looking for ways to bring water to our region, including desalination of sea water.

  2. I agree. I was thinking out of every ten years we may get 4 wet winters and I don't mean any record setting amounts. Heavy winters maybe 1 out of 15. I'm thinking single digit rainfall. I agree not that these high's move here in mid August and stay till when ever . March maybe
