Chico, Calif. -- Mountain travel will be impacted with lingering snow showers today and Friday.

Minor flooding will likely continue along the sacramento river at Ord Ferry and Tehama Bridge through Friday. 

Additional showers will be possible over the weekend.

Cloudy skies continue across the region in the wake of Wednesday`s storm.

We could see some scattered showers continuing, mainly across the southeastern part of the North State.

Current temperatures are a little than this time yesterday - from the 30s in the mountains to the upper 40s to lower 50s across the Valley.

Scattered showers will continue today into Friday as the main part a low pressure system of the coast moves in to our south.

With the colder temperatures expect now levels as low as around 4500-5000 ft.

The Winter Storm Warning is going to be downgraded to an advisory this evening.

Nevertheles expecrt another 4 to 8 inches of snow, with locally higher amounts, can be expected across the northern Sierra today.

Short wave ridging provides a brief break in the precip Friday night into Saturday, but some light showers more in Saturday afternoon.

Mainly dry on Monday as high pressure dominates our area,

Tuesday, another weak system moves through but by mid-week we'll dry out again and see dry weather with breezy northerly wind.

The potential for flooding due to Spring snowmelt across Northern California is elevated due to above normal snowpack across the Cascades and the Sierra.

Some of the lower elevation regulated systems will likely be under additional stress throughout the spring due to higher than normal releases from the large reservoirs as they manage inflows from the above normal snowmelt volumes.

Flows are expected to remain above normal in the san joaquin system well into the snowmelt season, putting continuous stress on the flood conveyance system.

Flooding in California could also result from heavy rainfall alone, or combined with snowmelt anytime during the spring.

A seasonably hot beginning to the workweek for northern California, and hotter weather is in the short term forecast, with very little relief in the long term.
