Showers, thunderstorms, and strong winds have returned to the north state in your Sunday forecast. The wet conditions started in the Northwest corner of the state, and are quickly progressing to the Southeast through the region. Thunderstorms have been very prevalent in the northern end of the valley, but could slide down to the mid valley over the next few hours. Some areas of the region are reporting very heavy precipitation, and Red Bluff has already recorded over a half an inch of rain. Winds have also been picking up throughout the day, and have gusted to over 30mph out of the South in the northern end of the valley. Sustained winds will be up to around 15mph out of the South, with gusts possible topping 35mph. High temperatures climbed into the mid 60's to low 70's for the valley this afternoon, and into the mid 50's to low 60's in the mountains.
Mostly cloudy skies, and the chance for more showers will continue into your Monday forecast. Snow levels will dip to around 4000ft to 5000ft overnight, but not much accumulation is expected. The chance for wet weather will extend into Tuesday morning, before a ridge build back into the West Coast. Sunny skies, and warming conditions will be ahead for Wednesday through the end of the week. I hope everyone is ready for this wet weather, and had a wonderful weekend!
