Dry with near seasonable temperatures this week. A slight warm up with possible mountain thunderstorms expected early next week.


Trough of low pressure along the coast will deepen today and tonight. This will bring cooler air throughout the region today and tonight. Moderate Delta breeze is expected to to continue into the weekend and a few low clouds may advect into the Sacramento area Friday morning.

The low weakens a little on Friday to bring slight warming over todays highs but still a little below normal temperatures are expected for this time of year.

High pressure centered around the four corners area will strengthen an build a little westward Saturday and Sunday to bring a warming trend with temperatures becoming a little above seasonal normals over the weekend and persisting into the first part of next week.

Monsoonal moisture starts to work its way northward Sunday night along the crest but looks to hold off on any potential shower/thunderstorm activity until Monday.

Extended Discussion (Monday through Thursday)

High pressure will keep our temperatures a little above normal Monday through Thursday of next week. Monsoonal moisture may bring some activity to the crest south of Tahoe for the western side of the Sierra crest with most of the activity staying to the east Monday.

Most of the monsoonal activity Tuesday through Thursday looks to stay south and east of the area. Cluster analysis keeps a trough over the Pacific so temperatures should remain well within what you would expect for July. Delta breeze looks to continue throughout this period to help moderate some of the inland temperatures.
