Modest rain & heavy snow ahead for your weekend

Very active weather is returning for your weekend.

Posted: Feb 8, 2019 6:37 AM

We'll be mostly dry for the early portion of your Friday, but wet weather is returning to Northern California today. Looks like most areas can expect to stay dry until late this afternoon or early this evening. The Northern end of the valley may even stay dry today, with most of the active weather projected to hit the mid valley and mountains. Skies are cloudy for the start of your Friday and that has helped to keep temperatures slightly warmer for your morning. Valley areas are in the mid to high 30's this morning, and mountain areas are mostly in the teens to 20's. Winds are expected to be up to around 10mph out of the North today. The potential for showers will start to pick up later today. A Winter Storm Warning will be in place from 4pm Friday afternoon through 4am Monday morning for areas above 2500' in the Sierra. Rain and snow will become heavier tonight, and then more widespread as the next system moves into our region on Saturday. High temperatures will top out in the low 50's in the valley this afternoon, and in the 30's to low 40's in the mountains. Snow levels will be down to around 2500' tonight.

More rain and snow are ahead for your weekend. Mountain areas are expecting to be much more impacted than the valley. Winds will become gusty out of the South on Saturday. Gusts could reach 40 to 50mph Saturday evening. Snow levels will dip to around 2000' on Saturday and will continue to drop to around 1500' on Sunday. There will be a slight chance for a mix of rain and snow hitting the valley floor in Redding on Sunday. up to around 4 feet of snow could fall in the mountains this weekend, but less than an inch of rain is projected for most of the valley. Looks like we may be in for a break from the wet weather on Sunday afternoon, but another wet system will move in to bring more mountain showers on Monday. There is a chance for valley showers to start next week, but the impacts will not be as substantial as the mountains. More active weather is projected to continue through next week.
