The sunny and warm weather we have been experiencing the last few days will be replaced with cooler weather and even a slight chance for a few showers by the weekend.
A trough of low pressure over the Gulf of Alaska is approaching the Pacific Northwest with the tail end of the cold front moving through Northern California. It’s expected to move through the Northstate on Saturday giving us cooler temperatures, clouds and even a few rain drops.
The cold front will be well organized Saturday morning along the coast giving them moderate to heavy rain. Once it hits the Coastal Range and the Trinity Alps it’s expected to weaken as it approaches the valley. What this will mean for the valley is partly to mostly cloudy skies with a chance for a few isolated showers and sprinkles. It will dry out completely by Saturday night.
Behind the storm will be cool air along with breezy north winds for both Sunday and Monday only making it to the mid 60’s for daytime highs. We’ll continue with partly cloudy skies on Tuesday and Wednesday and a chance for more showers by the end of next week.
