Chico, Calif.-- What a beautiful Sunday across the North State!

A few clouds out there, but otherwise, nothing but sunshine and just a few degrees above normal for this time of year.

High pressure continues and it's going to dominate the forecast across the western states, moving eastward to the north of a weak & rain-free low pressure area over Southern California.

For your Monday morning, you won't notice much of a change, likely just a few degrees cooler.

As that low to our South moves over the Great Basin Tuesday, another one drops down from the Gulf of Alaska and into the Pacific northwest late at night.

So, we'll see a nice flow through the Delta at the start of the week, keeping temperatures in the 70s for the valley on Tuesday and Wednesday with 60s in the mountains.

Temperatures at night will continue to cool into the 40s for most valley locations with mid 20s to lower 30s for the mountain valleys.

Another weak system will move through the Pacific Northwest on Thursday, but it's looking like any rain would be too far north to impact most of us, likely closer to the Oregon border.

Friday and Saturday, high pressure ridging brings another warm-up next weekend.

That lasts for a couple of days, then a weak system will flatten out the ridge and drop temperatures again for the following work week.
