Chico, Calif.-- Happy Friday! If you liked this week's weather, that's what's in store for the weekend as well.
Warm and dry, with our highs just a few degrees above normal.
We'll start to cool down by Monday with a chance of a little rain in the Northern mountains Tuesday through Thursday.
High pressure builds back in by the end of next week.
Right now, we're dealing with a Rex Block - high pressure over us in the Pacific Northwest, low pressure off the Southern California coast.
So, we're seeing the air warms a few to several degrees today as the high pressure centers on our coast.
As the surface pressure expands east toward Nevada, expect breezy east winds over the Sierra tonight through Saturday morning, with gusts up to about 25 mph through some canyons.
By Saturday the center shifts over the valley and winds calm and temperatures cool a little.
By Sunday, we all cool down as that low pressure to the south moves inland.
Tuesday, a pacific frontal system approaches and moves inland at night.
Any chance for rain would be over the Coastal and Shasta mountains Tuesday and Wednesday.
Below normal high temps forecast Tuesday through Thursday, warming to slightly above normal Friday.
Another disturbance moves into northern portions of the forecast area Thursday.
Lingering showers possible over mainly the Shasta mountains Friday, and then high pressure builds back in next weekend.
