A Flash Flood Warning has now expired in Central Butte County after as much as 5 inches of rain fell throughout the afternoon and evening.

Up to two inches of accumulated hail as big as 0.70 inches have been reported across Northwestern Butte County.

And into tomorrow morning, expect flooded roads to still be difficult to pass into the morning; right now the Flood Warning is in effect through 8:30 a.m.

Toward the Sierra, a Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect through midnight for elevations 6,500 feet and above.

Snow levels are between 6,500 and 7,000 feet today and any residual snow showers should wind down overnight.

On Wednesday, while most of the region will be dry, the northern mountains can expect passing showers throughout the day.

A system moves in early Thursday that is likely a quick-hitter.

Total precipitation amounts will be light across the region with highest Valley numbers near Redding where 1/4 to 1/2 inches is possible.

We could see as much as an inch in the foothill and mountains.

We're not expecting any travel concerns with 2 to 4 inches of snow in the forecast with snow levels around 6,000 to 6,500 feet.

Ahead of the weak Atmospheric River slated to push onshore Friday morning, southerly winds will really begin to pick up Thursday afternoon.

This is particularly the case over the northern Sacramento Valley with wind gusts potentially reaching 35 to 40 mph in the evening to overnight hours.

On Friday morning, rainfall moves inland with activity really picking up around the early afternoon over mountain and foothill locations.

We could see the heaviest snowfall from the just after noon into the overnight hours with snow levels roughly around 6,000 feet.

This will likely lead to hazardous mountain travel.

Snowfall amounts of 1 to 2 feet are possible during the duration of the late season winter storm.

The weekend forecast remains up in the air but at this point, expect scattered showers on Saturday, especialy across the interior mountain ranges.
