Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Sacramento CA
232 PM PST Tue Dec 5 2017

.Synopsis...
Dry weather this week with cool nights and mild
days. Gusty north to east winds will gradually decrease today.

&&

.Discussion (Today through Friday)...

Ridge of high pressure will continue to provide clear skies and
dry weather through the end of the week. Pressure gradient over
the Sierra tonight through Wednesday will continue to bring breezy
conditions for the mountains, but otherwise winds in the valley
will decrease through the day today and through the week.
High temperatures this week will range between 5 and 10 degrees
above normal for this time of year, but clear skies overnight will
allow for lots of cooling to into the mid 30s. Some locations
along and south of Sacramento will be near to just below freezing,
which will allow for the formation of frost for low lying areas.
Frost could damage sensitive crops and cause problems for outdoor
pets.

.EXTENDED DISCUSSION (Saturday THROUGH Tuesday)

Not much to talk about in the extended forecast. A high amplitude
ridge will remain in place over the western US and that is going
to bring continued dry weather. High temperatures will be mild
with cool overnight lows. Hazy skies possible from time to time as
the air mass remains stagnant.
