High pressure continues to build across the region through
midweek. Well above seasonal high temperatures are on tap through
the week with moderate inversions.


Big bubble no trouble pretty much sums it up for the next 7-10
days. Strong high pressure is expected to remain near the West
Coast into next week. The typhoon being absorbed into the flow
near Japan will actually act to keep the pattern locked in place
as it reinforces the trough near the dateline. The only real
sensible weather changes may be from weak systems dropping down
the east side of the ridge. The potential effects from these would
be a little stronger northeast ridge winds and slightly cooler
valley temps. One such system is expected Thursday and another
possible early next week.

Outside of the limited, if any, effects from the passing waves,
the pattern will be fairly persistent. Daytime highs 10-15 degrees
above average with slightly warmer than average overnight lows.
Winds will also be light outside of the locally gusty NE ridge
winds mentioned above.


VFR through Friday. Some gusty NE ridge winds tonight in the
Sierra with some lgt mtn wave chop. Otherwise light winds for the
foreseeable future.
