The trough will shift further east today replaced by flat ridging from the eastern Pacific. This will lead to a warming and drying trend this week.

Breezy north winds are expected today and Monday through the Central Valley. By Tuesday, highs will be well above average with warmest readings around the century mark in the Central Valley.

Extended discussion (Thursday through Sunday)

Several upper lows moves through PacNW towards the end of the week into the weekend with associated upper troughing over NorCal. This will result in minor cooling but temperatures remaining above normal Thursday through Sunday with dry weather.
