Chico, Calif.-- High pressure directly above low pressure over the eastern Pacific means clear skies and hot temperatures for yet another day.

It's still very dry out there today with very little influence from the Delta Breeze, but a little better than yesterday, mostly in the teens and twenties.

We'll stay like this for the next 24 hours or so, but winds from the north are continuing to subside, good news for firefighting efforts.

By Friday that low pressure to the south edges closer to the coast, starting a strong cooling trend across the region heading into the weekend.

We could see showers Saturday as the low centers to our north.

That low pressure center moves across rthe Pacific Northwest Sunday but it's moving farther North than first anticipated so the chances of showers in the mid valley are less likely.

Right now it looks like the chance of showers in the northern mountains Sunday morning are moderate.

We'll see enough cloud cover across the weekend to keep temperatures cool and consistent.

Beginning the next work week, another low pressure system approaches the north coast.

We'll see another chance of rain along the coast Monday morning, with some models showing showers in the mid valley monday

Tuesday daytime temperatures remain below normal.

Wednesday we'll start to warm up again, looking mostly dry as high pressure again builds over the eastern Pacific.
