Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Sacramento CA

SYNOPSIS… Locally breezy northerly winds in the northern and western Sacramento valley through mid-day Friday. Otherwise quiet and dry conditions continue. Temperatures near to slightly above normal for this time of year.


.DISCUSSION

… Abundant sunshine is being observed across interior northern California on visible satellite imagery this afternoon. An upper level trough is moving over the Pacific Northwest today, and will settle over the northern/central Rockies by tomorrow. With this low off to our east, locally breezy northerly winds are forecast over the area, however no major impacts are expected. The strongest winds will be over the northern and western portions of the Sacramento Valley this evening through mid-day Friday where gusts up to 15-25 mph are possible. Even with locally breezy north winds, fire weather concerns remain minimal as relative humidity and fuels are not critically low. As this trough continues to shift eastward over the next few days toward the northern great plains, ridging will build back in behind it. As a result, warm and dry conditions will prevail over the weekend. Temperatures will be trending right around normal, to slightly above normal over the next several days. Valley locations will see daytime high temperatures in the mid 80s to low 90s during this time. Onshore flow will return to the area over the weekend as the winds will shift from the north back to the typical west- southwest flow. 


.EXTENDED DISCUSSION

(MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY)... Ensembles and clusters are in good agreement for ridging to continue over interior northern California through the middle of next week, with a trough developing well offshore over the Pacific Ocean. As a result, warm and dry conditions will continue with high temperatures near seasonable values for early October.
