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.
Our sort of wet period was short lived. While the high pressure ridge that had been along the coast weakened somewhat, is now pushing or building northward. The nice looking low pressure are and frontal system shown on this morning's satellite picture, is being routed to the northeast. This system will bring some clouds to Northern California tonight and early Sunday with a few light showers on the north coast and near the Oregon border. Monday and Tuesday we will see a few clouds from Redding northward. Temperatures will be above normal and winds will be light.
Wednesday through next weekend a strong high pressure ridge will be along the west coast (see map below). Skies will be mostly clear. Daytime temperatures will be 10 to 15 degrees above normal and winds will be light.
