A low pressure trough is moving through the area. The main band of precipitation has gone through but there will be some showers through this afternoon over the foothills and mountains. Snow levels will be 5000 to 6000 feet. Clouds increase again Sunday, and late Sunday afternoon the next frontal system reaches the coast. This is a weak system and will bring light rain and showers to the north state Sunday night through midday Monday. Snow levels will be 5000 to 6000 feet.
Tuesday through Thursday afternoon a high pressure ridge will be along the coast (see map below). Skies will be clear with above normal temperatures and light to moderate north winds.
More rain is expected late Thursday and Friday as another weak frontal system moves through. The showers will end Saturday morning.
