Storms bringing good moisture back to NorCal this week

Much needed rain and snow returns for coming work week! Some spots will see up to 2-3" of rain

Posted: Jan 14, 2018 11:48 PM

Dense fog around the area early Monday morning will affect your commute to work. Sunday night heavy fog has been developing in an area extending South from Red Bluff in Tehama County to Sacramento. People traveling on highways 70 and 99, as well as Interstates 5 and 80 should expect limited visibility on roads and hazardous driving conditions. Give yourself plenty of time to get to work in the morning!


A couple of storms rolling through the North State this week look to bring some good moisture back to the region with some rain and snow. We shouldn't see much of the wet weather for MLK Jr. Day until the late afternoon and early evening, right around 5-6pm. Some light showers as we head home from work and sit down for dinner. Rain totals through Monday should be fairly light though, 0.10-0.25" across the region. Probably won't see too much snow developing with this system, but should pick up around 3-6inches early Tuesday morning as temperatures get a little cooler.

Tuesday turns to more scattered shower activity as we continue towards the afternoon, with a couple additional inches of snow in the Mountains for the morning. We should then dry out into the evening and into Wednesday's forecast. We get a small break from some of the wet weather for the lonely midweek day, then a stronger storm will hit us for Thursday, Friday and into the weekend.

The second storm wave should produce some better rainfall totals and more snow as it draws in colder air. Snow levels will drop to around 5000' Thursday afternoon and evening, but could drop as low as 3000' into early Friday morning. Valley should get close to one inch through the second storm wave. Precip estimates are looking very good with both of these storms.
