Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Sacramento CA
206 PM PDT Sat Sep 24 2022

.Synopsis...
Warm and dry weather is forecast to prevail through the weekend
and into early next week.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Not too much to talk about when it comes to our weather. Upper
level ridge will continue to build in from the southeast today
and tomorrow. This will bring quiet conditions along with warm
temperatures. Highs will generally run 3 to 9 degrees above
average. A short wave will pass to our north tomorrow and that may
bring a few high clouds to far northern parts of the state but
overall the clouds will remain north. Cooling trend starts Monday
as a trough digs out of the Gulf of Alaska and pushes the ridge
east.

.EXTENDED DISCUSSION (Wednesday THROUGH Saturday)...
Upper level trough and weakening frontal system will push into
the PacNW Wednesday. This will bring some cooling along with some
cloud cover. Short wave ridge builds in for the end of the week
bringing a warming trend. Ensemble spread increases as we head
into next weekend as anther trough begins to dig out of the Gulf
of Alaska. Timing and depth look uncertain but impacts with this
trough look minor with just some cooling.

.AVIATION...VFR conditions for interior NorCal over the next 24
hours. Surface winds generally at or below 12 kts.
