AM Clouds, PM Sunshine and a Warm Weekend

By Carlo Falco

High level clouds will move out by this afternoon.

An upper level system is moving to our north bringing rain to Oregon and Washington.  That system is a very weak one and we’re getting the trailing end of the cold front associated with it.  Once our clouds move out we’ll see the temperatures increase along with the winds.  That as another area of high pressure moves in off the ocean.  That high is a warmer version of the high pressure region currently over the west coast.  The temperatures will respond accordingly and much of northern California will climb into the low 70s today, but the low 80s tomorrow.

The high pressure ridge will slowly depart to our east moving into Monday and Tuesday which will turn our winds to our south and push the wind speeds higher.  Tuesday will push those winds even higher, winds could top 30mph then.  Unfortunately there isn’t any shot at any rain.  The promising system forecast for Wednesday and Thursday to bring a bit of moisture has all but evaporated.  The most we’ll see is some high and mid level clouds which will blot out the sun, but won’t put down any precipitation.
