REDDING, Calif.-

A controlled burn is planned for Monday in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. 

This will be in the area of Blue Rock Road, about four miles north of Weaverville. 

The Trinity River Management Unit is planning the burn to remove dead vegetation and reduce the risk of future wildfires. 

Smoke will be visible for two to three days along China Gulch Road, Little Browns Creek, and Browns mountain. 

A total of 78 acres may be burned, depending on weather conditions and safety other considerations.

Light scattered showers are on tap for the start of your Thursday, and I'm tracking heavier rain ahead from Thursday afternoon through mid day Friday. We'll have a lull in our wet pattern late Friday through early Saturday, but even heavier rain and snow will return this weekend and persist into next week. Major travel impacts will be possible across northern California from this wet weather.
