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 weak low pressure area and frontal system is off the coast and moving eastward. The southern end of this system will bring a few showers to the areas north of Redding later today and early Tuesday. The showers will end by Tuesday morning with mostly sunny skies over all areas by midday. Temperatures today and Tuesday will be near normal. Light to moderate southwest to northwest winds will occur later today and early Tuesday.
Wednesday high pressure begins slowly rebuild along the coast. Wednesday will be sunny with temperatures a few degrees above normal and light winds. Thursday a low pressure trough will pass through Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. This system will bring a few mid and high clouds to the north state and cool temperatures back to near normal.
Friday through at least the mid part of next week the high pressure ridge along the coast will be controlling our weather (see map below). This means clear skies and above normal temperatures.
