December 2, 2020 – Persistent dry weather will continue with mostly clear skies, above average high temperatures and cool nights.
High pressure will continue above normal temperatures again today after some patchy morning fog through the central part of the valley from around Marysville southward. A weak dry system will pass through on Thursday with no impact for the area other than bringing us some high clouds.
The low will become cutoff by Friday and sit over the Northern California/Northern Nevada border into Saturday when an approaching trough will push the low to the northeast. Little daily changes through Saturday with a fairly persistent forecast each day.
Extended discussion (Sunday through Wednesday)
Dry weather continues through the extended period as high pressure remains situated over interior Northern California. Unseasonably mild highs will continue each day along with colder than normal mornings. Valley highs look to be in the mid to upper 60s early next week, with some locations possibly hitting 70 degrees in the northern Sacramento Valley.
There is a chance for some breezy north to east winds early next week, although confidence is low at this time due to ensemble guidance keeping strong ridging across the area.
