Snow has continued to fall in the North end of the valley overnight, with up to a foot of snow totals possible in Redding. Drivers should use extreme caution today as roads will be very slick. A Winter Storm Warning is in place for the Northern end of the valley through noon today, and will be in place for the Sierra, Casccades, and Shasta County Mountains through Friday afternoon. Several feet of snow will be possible along the highest elevations. Chains will be required in the mountains and in portions of the North end of the valley today.

Debris flows and mud slides will be possible along recent burn scars, and ponding water on roads can be expected. A Wind Advisory will be in place through 1pm in the valley today and will then go back into effect for the valley for the day on Thursday.
