Be prepared for more gusty winds, and heavy rain and snow across Northern California today. You're going to want your jacket and umbrella on your way out the door this morning, and you may want to give yourself extra time to get to where you're going today. Heavy rain could result in flooding or mud slides across our region today. A Flash Flood Watch, Flood Watch, and Flood Advisory are all in place for portions of Northern California through Thursday morning. There is a very decent chance for debris flows or flash flooding around the recent burn scar areas of Butte and Shasta Counties. The Winter Storm Warning will be in effect for portions of the Sierra and Northern Mountains through Thursday morning. Snow levels will mostly be down to around 4500', but some areas could see snow down to 4000' over the next few days. The Wind Advisory is staying in place for the valley through noon on Wednesday. Sustained winds could reach 35mph out of the South, with gusts to around 50mph. Temperatures are starting out in the low 50's for most valley areas this morning, and in the 30's to low 40's in the mountains early today. High temperatures will top out in the low to mid 50's in the valley this afternoon, and in the high 30's to mid 40's in the mountains.

Rain and snow will continue to fall on Wednesday, but will be much lighter and scattered than Monday or Tuesday. Winds will start to diminish on Wednesday morning, and the Wind Advisory will be lifted for the afternoon. There will still be potential for flooding from the heavy rain, and snow will continue to make mountain travel difficult. Showers will linger into your Thursday forecast, but are expected to fizzle out in the afternoon. We'll be dry for your Friday, but more light showers look likely on Saturday. The current outlook has Northern California drying out on Sunday, with sunshine returning for the start of next week.
