Showers and thunderstorms continued in the mountains Thursday and developed in the Valley Thursday evening as well. An incoming storm will bring light rain for everyone late Friday night!
Scattered thunderstorms developed in the mountains Thursday afternoon, and a strong one developed in the Valley Thursday evening, soaking Orland and Chico. This activity should diminish before midnight. An incoming disturbance helped spark this thunderstorm. This disturbance is ahead of a wetter storm due in Friday night. During the day Friday, we'll notice clouds thickening up, but the light rain should hold off until Friday night (hopefully after the Kool April Nites Cruise in Redding!). The rain should end early Saturday (hopefully before the Gold Nugget Days Parade in Paradise!), and we're looking at about .10" for most of the Valley. We'll still see a few scattered showers on Saturday after the wave passes us, but not much.
Skies will clear Saturday night, and it will be sunny and much warmer on Sunday... Perfect for the Wildflower Century bike ride in and around Chico! High pressure will strengthen quickly, and our temperatures will warm fast next week!
But before that... rain moves in Friday night!
