Storm Tracker Forecast: Wet weather returns tonight

Wet weather returns to Northern California tonight, and several more wet system will bring showers through this weekend.

Posted: Jan 7, 2020 5:52 PM

We've had a comfortable and dry start to your work week, but that is expected to end tonight. Low pressure heading through to our North will drag showers across Northern California tonight and scattered showers will linger in the mountains on Wednesday. Snow levels are projected to dip down to around 4000' tonight, and we could end up with a couple of inches of snow above 4500' through tomorrow afternoon. Valley areas will have the best chance for light showers later tonight, with most of the wet weather wrapping up before your Wednesday morning commute. There will be a slight chance for a stray shower lingering in the Redding area early on Wednesday, but that doesn't look likely. Fog will likely be a bigger factor for your morning commute in the valley on Wednesday morning. Temperatures are projected to dip into the mid 30's to low 40's in the valley tonight, and mountain areas will start out in the mid 20's to low 30's on Wednesday morning. Skies will be mostly cloudy through the day on Wednesday and temperatures will be cooler than Tuesday. Valley areas are projected to top out in the high 40's to low 50's, and mountain areas will end up in the mid 30's to low 40's.

The next chance for widespread showers will be returning to Northern California on Wednesday night into Thursday. Snow levels will be down to around 3500' and we'll have a decent chance for showers lingering into the early portion of your Thursday forecast. Skies will be partly cloudy for your afternoon on Thursday. We'll also end up slightly warmer on Thursday afternoon, with most areas ending up around average for this time of year. For the valley that means high temperatures in the low to mid 50's, and for the mountains that means temperatures will mostly end up in the high 30's to low 40's. Temperatures will dip into the low to mid 30's overnight into Friday morning in the valley. Mountain areas will mostly dip into the 20's. We are expecting to stay dry during the day on Friday, but the next chance for showers could be returning as early as Friday night.

Showers are expected on Saturday and snow levels will be down to around 3500'. The Thursday and the Friday into the weekend systems will both have the potential to bring travel impacts into the mountains. The current forecast is showing the potential for up to 8 inches of snow in the mountains from Wednesday night through Thursday, and we'll have the potential for around a half a foot of snow in our higher elevations from Friday night through Saturday. Scattered showers are expected in the mountains on Sunday, but the forecast looks dry for the valley. Yet another chance for widespread showers will then return to Northern California on Sunday night and will persist into Monday.
