  • Have battery-operated flashlights and radios with fresh batteries ready. Listen for updates on storm conditions and power outages.
  • If you have a telephone system that requires electricity to work (such as a cordless phone or answering machine), plan for alternate communication - have a standard telephone handset, cellular telephone or pager ready as a back-up.
  • Freeze plastic containers filled with water to make blocks of ice that can be placed in your refrigerator/freezer during an outage to prevent foods from spoiling.

Weather Discussion; The Old Forecaster

Chris Fontana, "The Old Forecaster" 4/16/2014

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Normal high and low temperatures for this week April 14-April 20 (high/low)...Redding/Red Bluff 70/47, Chico 73/44, Quincy 64/32, Chester 57/28, Susanville 62/34, Grass Valley 61/39, Weaverville 67/35, Mt. Shasta 59/34, Yreka 64/34 and Alturas 60/30.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

High pressure continues along the west coast.    However, it will slowly weaken over the next several days as low pressure troughs and frontal systems ride over the top of it.  
 
These systems will slowly erode the the high pressure area and push it southward.  This means that each system will be stronger than the previous.  
 
Today we will be sunny with continued above normal temperatures with gusty north winds in the north valley.  
 
Thursday afternoon and early Friday a low pressure trough and frontal system will push through the north state.  This system will bring partly cloudy skies to our areas with showers and possible thunderstorms on the north coast and across Siskiyou, northern Trinity, and Modoc counties with isolated showers and thunderstorms over Lassen and Plumas counties.
