Today was a great day outide after rain overnight dropped a good quarter to half an inch of rain. Sunshine with a few clouds were the story this afternoon with highs right at 60 degrees.
Tomorrow will remain nice with increasing clouds through day. A couple of showers will be possible Sunday ahead of an approaching system sliding south from the Gulf of Alaska.
Scattered showers & snow will be possible on Monday with thunderstorms north of Chico possible in the valley in the afternoon. Some of these thunderstorms have the potential to be severe, which means strong winds, olarge hail and the chance for a weak tornado or funnel cloud can not be ruled out.
Showers & snow become more widespread on Tuesday with thunderstorms also possible south of Chico, not just north, in the afternoon.
The active weather ramps down on Wednesday, becoming more scattered.
Snow levels will be between 1,500 feet and 3,000 feet for most, with 6 to 12 inches of additional snow likely.
Monday through Wednesday will also be cold thanks to the deep trough of low pressure bringing cool air from the north. Highs will be in the mid-to-low 50s with the coldest temperatures on Tuesday.
Thursday and Friday the sun comes back out with highs warming up into the mid-to-upper 60s, maybe even 70 degrees. It could also be a little breezy on Thursday. Weather should remain mostly quiet to start your weekend.
