Be prepared for more wet and windy weather across Northern California in your Thursday forecast. More rain and mountain snow, gusty South winds, and the potential for some flooding will continue today. A Flood Advisory will stay in place for portions of Northern California through 4pm this afternoon. Ponding water on roads, debris flows around recent burn scars, and small creek and stream flooding will be possible today. The Winter Storm Warning has been extended through 4am Friday morning for areas above 4500', and a Blizzard Warning will stay in place through noon today for areas above 6500'. Heavy snow and gusty winds could cause whiteout conditions in higher elevations, and driving could be treacherous in some areas. You're advised to avoid mountain travel if you can today, or at least be extremely cautious if you do need to travel through higher passes. A Wind Advisory will also be in place for the valley until noon today. Sustained winds up to 30mph out of the South are expected, with gusts up to around 45mph. Temperatures are starting out mild this morning, with low to mid 50's in the valley, and mid 30's to mid 40's in the mountains. Periods of heavy rain and snow will continue across Northern California today, with the biggest impacts expected in the mountains. We will also have a slight chance for thunderstorms today. High temperatures are projected to top out in the mid to high 50's in the valley, and into the low to mid 40's in the mountains. Winds will still be breezy and out of the South tonight.

Lighter showers are going to be possible for your Friday and Saturday forecast, with the best chance for active weather resting in the Northern Mountains. Temperatures will not change much over the next few days, but winds will be lighter. South winds to 10mph are expected in the valley on Friday and Saturday. The next widespread wet even will move into the region on Sunday and bring rain and snow to most of our area. Looks like we'll dry out just in time for the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday on Monday. Dry and slightly warmer weather is expected for the start to middle of next week.
