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.

A fairly strong low pressure area and frontal system are now moving into Northern California.  This system will bring rain, heavy at times, to Northern California today.  Snow levels will be 5000 to 5500 feet north and higher south.  Strong and gusty south winds will occur through mid afternoon with gusts 50 to 55 mph in then north end of the valley and 65 mph over the higher elevations.  The rain turns to showers by evening and ends during the night.

Tuesday will be partly cloudy.  Another low pressure trough will move through Wednesday.  This system will not be as strong as today's but will bring rain to all of the north state.  Snow levels will be around 5000 feet.  Locally gusty south winds will precede the storm.

A brief break occurs Thursday and then another low pressure system moves through on Friday (see map below).  This system will be stronger than Wednesday but not as strong as today's.  Snow levels will be 3500 feet north and 5000 feet south.  

Last blog it looked like high pressure would build back over the west by the weekend.  It now looks like the high will be delayed a few days.  Another low pressure trough and frontal system will bring more precipitation to our area Sunday afternoon and Monday.
