REDDING, Calif - After some beautiful sunny California days, drivers on Friday can expect slick roads throughout the weekend.

When driving on these wet roads motorists have less time to react and could get into a crash.

That’s why CHP officers want to remind everyone to drive slower, leave extra room between cars and make sure your windshield wipers are working.

Residents Action News Now spoke with say they’re happy about the change in weather.

“Oh no, I have plenty to do around the house, and just throw on a hat and a slicker and we're good to go,” said John Whitmore, a resident in the Redding area. 

“You won’t ever hear me complain about it although somewhat selfishly you know we are going to be inside this weekend when we had plans to go outside you know off-road motorsports that kind of stuff. But there is always another weekend for that,” said Ryan McNally, a resident in the Redding Area. 

Caltrans District 2 is also announcing snow as close as Shingletown.

If you do head out there this weekend do not forget your snow chains and a full tank of gas.
