Old Forecaster: Midweek 10-Day Redding Area Weather Outlook, Sept. 15-24

This outlook is issued every Wednesday to update the Sunday weekly forecast and provide a weather outlook for the next 10 days.

We will be in an early fall type weather pattern from Thursday (the 15th) through the weekend. Storms will be moving out of the Gulf of Alaska and into western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. The southern end of these systems will bring a few mid and high clouds to the Redding area and cooler temperatures.

Thursday through Sunday, Redding will be sunny with a few high clouds and high temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s. The high pressure area will build or strengthen over the western U.S. starting next week (the 19th). Redding will have sunny skies and above normal temperatures. The 19th through the 24th should be sunny with high temperatures in Redding 93 to 97.
