Hi friends. Are you ready to see how the weather is in northern California for the middle of the week? I sure am!
At 753PM, ET, Sacramento was reporting a temperature of 64 degrees with clear skies. An upper level trough at the tail end of a strong Pacific jet streak is generating some upper level northwesterly flow across northern California, but clear skies are seen through all layers. Still, there will be a bit of an inversion, and dramatic cooling is not expected overnight.
The upper level trough will help generate a deeper surface low just off the coast of Washington. A cold front will sink south towards Sacramento by late evening tomorrow. Not much cold air will work into the Valley, but there may be a spot of light rain overnight. The system will be chased out quickly as low pressure develops along the stronger jet streak still over the Pacific. That will be a problem for Thursday, as Wednesday will be clear soon after the sun comes up.

The west coast is so difficult. We can’t even pin down a precip forecast, but at least those temperatures are in the same ballpark. Here is the satellite imagery for the night, with most of the activity off to the north of Sacramento.
