No rain through this weekend.

Temperatures will stay in the low to mid 70s range through Sunday afternoon.  Monday and Tuesday bring a very very weak low which will miss the northstate entirely and could bring a few sprinkles to the northernmost regions, but I’m not too gung-ho on that happening.  If it does, expect trace rainfall amounts or a coating of snow at the highest elevations.

Further down the line we are actually seeing a change in the weather for once.  Coming Wednesday night through Friday afternoon there is a decent chance for some meaningful rain to grace northern California with its presence.  The system will punch a hole right through the ridge, and will tap into some subtropical moisture which will run right up the front towards Redding.  Both models are also hinting at the trough finally setting up over the west coast to bring some more active weather and more rain which would be good.  I’m not getting too excited about that though as we’ve been burned with good news like this before.  We’ll keep you updated and keep hoping for rain.
