It was another windy day around the North State on Thursday. Those winds will subside overnight and not return on Friday. Wet weather looks to return Easter Sunday through next Tuesday!
It was one last day of windy weather around the North State today, with north winds gusting 25 to 30 mph in the Valley. Those winds will subside tonight, and not return again anytime soon. Friday looks a little warmer than today, but not much.
Clouds will thicken on Saturday ahead of a cold storm heading our way. That storm will spread light rain over us on Easter Sunday, along with mountain snow. Snow levels should start around 5000', but this storm is from the Gulf of Alaska and has some significant cold air with it. Snow levels will drop to near 3000' by Sunday night and stay there through Tuesday. If you're going to be driving over the higher mountain passes early next week, be prepared for winter driving conditions! It's a little early, but it's possible Lake Almanor could see 6" to 12" of new snow by Tuesday.
There is a slight chance of thunderstorms in the Valley early next week as well, although not too great of a chance. The low should be east of us by Wednesday, and we'll see skies clear and temperatures warm up afterwards.
But... It looks like Old Man Winter has got one of his coldest storms of the season heading our way this weekend/early next week!
