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 low pressure area that brought colder and wet weather to Northern California over the weekend is now moving out of our area. There will be some lingering showers through this afternoon over the foothills and mountains.
Tuesday looks mostly sunny as a high pressure ridge begins to rebuild over the west coast. Temperatures will warm but still be a few degrees below normal. Light to moderate north winds will occur.
Wednesday through Friday a strong high pressure ridge will be over the west coast. (see map below). Skies will be clear and daytime temperatures will be 10 to 15 degrees above normal. Winds will be light.
The high will weaken a little over the weekend. The only change this will have on the weather is lowering the temperatures a few degrees.
It looks like the dry weather will continue through at least the mid part of next week.
