A mild start to the first day of September as high pressure is the dominate weather maker here in Northern California. A deepening upper low off the British Columbia coast may start a cooling trend as early as this afternoon, even though we are running just shy of 3° warmer this morning compared to 24 hours ago. Today's high temperature is predicted to reach about 85°, which is the same high temperature on Monday, so the warming trend has been stopped at minimum. The low tonight is expected to be about 60°. Winds today should be generally out of the southwest at 5-8 mph, becoming light and variable tonight.
Wednesday will see the offshore upper low continue to dig south along the west coast and bring about cooler temperatures. The projected high for Wednesday afternoon at 2400' is 79°, and the low Wednesday night near 55°.
Continued cooling into the end of the week as the west coast weather system continued to dig south into Northern California. Some forecast models are trending towards the system dropping a bit farther south than previously thought. The National Weather Service has not yet added a chance of precipitation to our forecast for later this week, but that could change between now and then. For now, we are expecting dry weather through the end of the week, and much cooler temperatures. By Friday, the projected high temperature is only expected to reach 72°. Temperatures are expected to slowly go back up by this weekend, but still remain a bit below normal. Bob
