Be prepared for very active conditions before you head out the door this morning. Periods of heavy rain and thunderstorms will be possible in the valley, and rain and snow will be ahead for higher elevations through the day. Gusty South winds will also be an issue, and could down trees into roads or power lines today. Power outages, and dangerous roads are a couple of the bigger impacts you can expect today. Chains may be needed if you're planning to travel through higher elevations through the end of the week. The Winter Storm Warning will stay in place through Friday morning, with snow projected to fall down to around 4000'. The Flash Flood Watch for debris flows around recent burn scars has been extended through this afternoon. The Camp Fire, Carr Fire, Delta Fire, and Hirz Fire burn scars will all be threatened with debris flows through this afternoon. A Wind Advisory is also in place for gusts up to 40mph out of the South in the mid valley through noon today.

Temperatures are warm this morning, with 50's in the valley, and 30's to 40's in the mountains. Winds are strong and out of the South. We've had sustained winds up to 20mph this morning, with gusts upwards of 30mph overnight. Gusty winds will continue through the morning. Looks like we will have scattered showers through your morning commute, with heavier rain moving through our area later this morning. Heavy localized rain will be possible through the day if thunderstorms develop. High temperatures will only climb into the mid to high 50's in the valley, and into the 40's in the mountains. The heaviest precipitation will wrap up around 5pm, and showers will become lighter and more scattered tonight.

Scattered mountain showers will be possible into the morning on Friday, but valley areas are expected to stay dry from late tonight through mid day Friday. Another round of rain and snow will be ahead for Friday night through Saturday afternoon. Snow levels are expected to dip to between 3,000 to 4,000 feet on Friday night into Saturday, and that could cause major travel issues in higher elevations this weekend. Temperatures will be cooler this weekend, with valley areas topping out in the low 50's. Sunday will more than likely be dry, but some mountain showers will still be possible. More rain looks likely for next week, but models are split on when it will arrive. The current models have showers returning to our region on Tuesday and lasting into Wednesday.
