  • A weather system moving across the Pacific Northwest today into Monday will clip areas near the CA/OR border and far northern NV with a chance of light scattered showers. Otherwise, the week ahead looks relatively quiet in terms of precipitation.
  • Temperatures will cool below normal for Monday and Tuesday before starting to rebound for the rest of the week as higher pressure begins to build across the west coast.
  • Watersheds that still contain sufficient snow are continuing to show diurnal fluctuations due to snowmelt, but those signals are becoming less pronounced as snowpack diminishes.
  • The lower reaches of the Humboldt River will remain high through next week as high elevation snow in the Ruby Mountains continues to melt, and works its way down the system.
