Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Sacramento CA
258 PM PDT Sun Jun 25 2017

Cooler, but still remaining above normal into the weekend.


.Short Term Discussion (Tonight through Wednesday)...
Week upper troughing over the west coast will bring more cooling
on Monday with daytime highs forecast to come in just a little
above normal. A continued strong delta breeze will likely bring
another morning of scattered coastal stratus to the delta. Fair
skies and a bit more cooling expected on Tuesday as weak upper
troughing lingers along the west coast. Upper ridge begins to
rebuild by mid-week bringing the beginning of a warming trend.


Upper ridging moves over the forecast area Thursday bringing dry
weather with some warming. Weak upper troughing follows Friday
with little impact on weather or temperatures. Model differences
exist beyond this point with the EC deepening trough, while GFS
extends upper ridging from EPAC back over NorCal. Both solutions
point to little change into next weekend.
