Heavy rain and lower snow ahead for your Monday

Heavy rain, snow, thunderstorms, and gusty winds are all ahead for your Monday forecast.

Posted: Feb 4, 2019 6:43 AM

The severe winter weather we had over the weekend is ramping up for the start of your work week! A Flash Flood Watch will be in place around recent burn scars through 6pm tonight. Heavy snow and gusty winds are making mountain travel treacherous today, and a Blizzard Warning is in effect for portions of the Sierra that are above 5000' through 10pm Monday night. A Winter Storm Warning will be in place for Foothill and mountain areas through 4pm Tuesday afternoon. Heavy rain and snow are expected through your Monday and most of your Tuesday forecast. Snow levels are projected to dip into the 1500' to 2000' range later today. Low elevation snow, and high snow totals at higher elevations will make travel extremely difficult. Rain showers and thunderstorms are expected in the valley today. Thunderstorms could be accompanied by gusty winds, localized heavy rain, and hail. Temperatures have only dipped into the mid 40's in the valley overnight, and into the 20's to 30's in the mountains. Winds will be up to 25mph out of the South today, with gusts up to around 35mph. 4-8 inches of snow can be expected in the foothills, and multiple feet of snow are projected in higher elevations. High temperatures will top out in the high 40's to low 50's in the valley, and mountain areas will end up in the mid to high 30's later today.

Snow levels will continue to drop heading into your Tuesday forecast. Some areas may have snowfall down to around 500', and there is a decent chance for snow hitting the valley floor in Redding. There could even be potential for other parts of the valley getting a dusting of snow, but Redding looks to be the most promising spot as of now. Showers will become more scattered on Tuesday, but amounts will still be more than enough to cause additional travel impacts. Temperatures will be in the same range as Monday, if not a little cooler, on Tuesday. Dry but cool weather will be on tap for your Wednesday through Friday forecast, but more showers will return for the end of your work week. Looks like the next decent chance for showers will return on Friday. Models are currently split on if widespread or just mountain showers should be expected on Friday and this weekend. Widespread showers will be possible as early as Saturday, but the forecast is subject to change over the next few days.
