Big changes in the weather over the next several days. The high pressure ridge that has brought the hot weather to Northern California will continue to weaken and move eastward. A low pressure trough will drop southeastward from the Gulf of Alaska and will be along the coast and Monday and Tuesday (see map below). Sunny today and Sunday. Temperatures will cool a little today and then a few degrees more Sunday. Gusty west to northwest winds will occur today and Sunday.
Monday and Tuesday we will see a few clouds with isolated showers or thunderstorms over the higher elevations. Temperatures will be slightly below normal. Gusty south to southwest winds will occur in the afternoons.
Wednesday the trough moves east of our area. Wednesday and Thursday will be sunny with temperatures normal to slightly below. Friday a stronger low pressure trough will be along the coast and will continue there through the weekend. The north state will see a few clouds with scattered showers and thunderstorms.
