High pressure continues off the coast. Today through midday Monday we will have mostly clear skies. Temperatures will continue above normal. Light to moderate north winds will occur today and Sunday.
Monday a low pressure area will drop southward from Western Canada and end up over the Great Basin (see map below). The low will remain there through Thursday. This system has limited moisture. Monday night through Wednesday there will be partly cloudy skies east of the Sierra Cascade Crest with isolated light showers. The areas east of the Crest will see mostly sunny skies with a few clouds in the afternoons. Temperatures will cool but still be above normal west of the crest. Gusty north to northeast winds will occur late Monday through Wednesday.
