Scattered showers and the potential for thunderstorms are lingering in your afternoon and evening forecast. The majority of the showers have been in the mountains today but valley areas have had more scattered shower activity this afternoon. A thunderstorm did develop in Shasta County just after 5pm this afternoon. Heavy rain and hail was reported in areas to the West of I-5 and to the Southwest of Redding. Snow levels have mostly been up to around 3000' today. Showers will become lighter tonight and are mostly expected to taper off by midnight.

Mostly sunny skies are expected in your Thursday forecast. There is potential for frost in the valley and mountains for the start of the day and then a chance for scattered showers in the foothills and mountains in the afternoon and evening. The northern valley is not expected to have wet weather on Thursday. Temperatures will dip into the 30's in the valley and foothills overnight and into the teens to 20's in the mountains. High temperatures are projected to end up in the high 50's to low 60's in the valley, while foothill areas end up in the high 40's to mid 50's, and mountain areas mostly top out in the 40's. Portions of the Northern Mountains will likely end up in the 50's.

Dry and mostly mild weather is expected for your Friday, but a wet system approaching the Pacific Northwest will bring the chance for showers to the far northern portions of California on Friday night. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Saturday and light showers are expected to return to most of our region. Valley areas will mostly top out in the low 60's on Friday but will dip into the mid ot high 50's on Saturday. We'll continue to have the chance for showers on Sunday. Temperatures are projected to be slightly warmer on Sunday afternoon. Valley areas are projected to climb back into the mid 60's, while mountain areas mostly end up in the mid 40's to low 50's.

Models continue to stay split on what to expect as we head into next week, but the more likely solution brings dry weather and a warming trend from Monday through Wednesday. Other models are hinting at the chance for wet and cooler weather continuing through at least Tuesday. We're currently forecasting dry conditions and a warming trend. Valley areas are projected to end up in the high 60's to low 70's on Monday and then climb into the mid 70's by Wednesday afternoon.
