HIGH PRESSURE DOMINATES THE REGION THIS WEEK WITH TEMPERATURES
.DISCUSSION (TODAY THROUGH SATURDAY)...
A ridge of high pressure will remain over the area this week with
high clouds spilling into the area at least into Friday. Temperatures
will be a little above seasonal normals. Highs will mainly be in
the 80s for the valley with mainly 70s for the mountains each
day. Winds will generally be light and less than 10 mph. The ridge
will start to flatten out on Friday as a system moves into the
Pacific Northwest but little change in temperatures is expected.
As a trough moves over the Pacific Northwest on Saturday and into
NorCal some cooling is expected.
.EXTENDED DISCUSSION (Sunday THROUGH Wednesday)
Upper ridging wavers back northward into the PacNW on Sunday as a
weak short wave trough exits into the northern Rockies. Meanwhile,
the cutoff low drifts westward over the east Pac, west of Baja,
and eventually turns more northerly and may impact our southern
regions with some cloudiness. Otherwise, dry and warm is the
