The current weather pattern will last through midday Sunday.   The jetstream is running from the Gulf of Alaska into Northern California and is pushing a series of weak low pressure troughs or frontal systems across Northern California.  These systems aren't major precipitation producers but will bring showers and possible thunderstorms to all of the north state..'

This morning's satellite picture (below) shows the next system moving out of the Gulf of Alaska with quite a bit of cloudiness out ahead of it.  Today the north coast, Trinity, Siskiyou, Northern Shasta, and parts of Modoc county will be partly cloudy to cloudy with a few light showers.   The rest of the north state will start off sunny but will see increasing clouds during the day.

The first hopeful signs of drought recovery arrived in February when the Lake Almanor Basin received a greater-than-average amount of precipitation.

That trend continued in March with a total of 6.7 inches of new precipitation recorded at the Prattville monitoring site, a figure that is more than 2 inches greater than average.

The seasonal total now stands at 16.97 inches, or 62 percent of the long-term average for this point in the customary July – June water season.
