Tuesday through the weekend and into early next week, we are expecting partly-mostly sunny skies and dry weather. We could see some high clouds Tuesday – Thursday from weak systems moving through and falling apart as they encounter high-pressure anchored over the West. Then sunny for the weekend into early next week.
Highs in the 40s at the base and 30s up top Tuesday, 50s at the base & 40s up top Wednesday, and then dropping back into the 40s & 30s for Thursday into early next week.
We could see gusty winds up top Thursday as a dry cold front moves through. Winds start out southwest and turn to the northwest through the day, and gusting up to 40+ mph up top. Then Friday the winds turn northeast and could gust up to 30+ mph up top. Lighter winds are expected for the weekend.
The drier pattern is forecast to continue week 2 through at least Sunday the 23rd. That could change but the pattern forecast doesn’t support any storms moving in through at least then right now.
The pattern could start to shift the week of the 24th through the end of the month with the high-pressure ridge shifting farther away from the West Coast. That could start to allow weak systems into the northern Sierra at first, and then possibly wetter/snowier storms by the last few days of the month.
We will continue to watch the weather pattern trends for a pattern that could open the northern CA storm door back up. We will keep you updated and let you know as soon as we see fresh snow returning.
