Thursday was the last fairly quiet weather day that we'll have in northern California as a series of storms will move our way through next week. Our first chance for rain and snow showers arrives Friday morning with a cold front. We've had a lot of clouds in the sky today, but the clouds which are approaching our area tonight and tomorrow will bring valley rain and mountain snow showers by sunrise Friday. We can expect increasingly lower clouds tonight through tomorrow morning, and that will allow lows to stay a little milder. Lows will range from the 20s in the mountains to the 30s and 40s in the valley and foothills. We can expect valley rain and mountain snow showers Friday morning and Friday afternoon, decreasing from northwest to southeast through the afternoon and evening hours. Highs will range from the 30s in the mountains to the 40s and 50s in the valley.

We'll have a brief break from our unsettled weather on Saturday before the second storm arrives Sunday and early Monday. It will be a colder storm with more rain and snow for all areas, and lowering snow levels to 1,000 to 1,500 feet. The rain and snow won't be heavy, but it will be heavier than the first storm, and will cause wet valley and snowy mountain roads. After another brief break late Monday and Tuesday, the third storm will arrive next Wednesday and Thursday, with even colder air and heavier amounts of rain and snow. Snow levels will lower to the point that Redding may see a mix of rain and snow, turning back to all rain. 1 to 2 feet of snow will be possible in the mountains. Highs will be in the 30s, 40s and lower 50s.
