The long-range weather outlook is not promising for Northern California.
The National Weather Service says the chance for rain is expected to be below average through February 8th. Rain chances for Southern California as well as Oregon and Washington are expected to be closer to normal.
If the forecast remains into the next month, this means the Bay Area and most of Northern California will not record any significant rain for more than a month, usually in a period that is the wettest for California in the seasonal year. Earlier forecasts showed slight possibility at a chance for rain on Monday and into early February, but the rain chances have completely disappeared.
A stubborn ridge of high pressure has been deflecting storms away from Northern California for nearly three weeks.
