Mostly dry today, but more wet weather is ahead

Mostly dry weather is ahead for your Wednesday, but more showers are in store for your late week forecast.

Posted: Apr 3, 2019 6:34 AM

Looks like you'll want to keep your umbrella close as you head out the door on this Wednesday morning, but you may not end up needing it much outside today. The severe weather we were tracking through the region last night has now settled down, and a weak ridge of high pressure will be moving through Northern California today. We do have a decent chance for some valley showers during your morning commute, but the rest of the day looks mostly dry in lower elevations. Scattered showers will be possible in the mountains today but amounts are not expected to be very impressive. Overall, it looks like today will be a break from the very active weather we're having this week. We had a whopper of a storm system moving through our region last night that produced strong thunderstorms with heavy rain. A funnel cloud was spotted in Western Butte County but did not touch down. Periods of heavy rain caused flooding in areas of Chico yesterday evening, and a Flood Warning will be in place for Central Butte County through 8:30am this morning. Temperatures have dipped into the low to mid 50's in the valley overnight, and into the 30's to 40's in the mountains this morning. Winds will be out of the Southeast to around 15mph today. High temepratures are projected to end up slightly warmer than yesterday, with mid to high 60's expected in the valley. Mountain areas will top out in the 50's this afternoon.

A wetter storm system is setting up to bring more rain and lower snow levels to Northern California later this week. Widespread showers will be returning to our region on Thursday and will persist through Friday. The heaviest rain is expected to fall on Thursday night through early Friday. Snow levels could dip to as low as 4000' late this week. Temperatures will end up in the low to mid 60's in the valley on Thursday and Friday afternoons. You're going to be needing your umbrella over the next several days. Models are split on what to expect this weekend, but the latest data is hinting that showers will continue on Saturday. Most of the heavier rain is expected to be in the mountains, but valley areas will have some wet weather as well. Showers will linger in our region on Sunday, but it looks like we may be drying out for the start of next week. Mostly dry weather, and high temperatures in the low 70's are expected in the valley on Monday.

We began the new week with plenty of sunshine and heat around northern California, but more heat, more wind and more potential fire danger are ahead for our area.
