Clouds will stick around through most of the day, showers possible in the mountains.
Low pressure is moving into the region today and into tomorrow with the center of the low passing overhead tonight. That means that we’ll see slightly cooler temperatures today, and especially tomorrow, as the low brings cold air in from the Gulf of Alaska and increases the cloud cover. I don’t expect any showers to make it down to the valley floor, but if they do they’ll be very light and in the City of Shasta lake region or in extreme West Redding in the foothills.
Sunday the sun starts to return as high pressure builds to our west. That will start to clear the clouds out, but will drastically increase the wind – wind advisories are possible. Expect winds to be sustained in the 10-20mph range, with gusts to 40mph in the valley. Monday and Tuesday will allow the weather to return to normal with sunshine and warmer temps, but don’t get too comfortable. Long range models are indicating a large-scare swing in the pattern, which could mean a much colder and wetter pattern setting up for the next several weeks. We’ll keep you posted.
