Wet weather returns in your Wednesday forecast

Showers return tonight, but snow levels are staying high this week

Posted: Mar 7, 2018 7:15 AM

Warm, dry, and mild conditions are ahead for your Wednesday, but the potential for wet weather is returning to Northern California this evening. Clouds are filling into our region early on this morning, and mostly cloudy skies are expected throughout the day. Despite the increase in clouds, temperatures still look like they will end up in the same range as yesterday. We are several degrees warmer than 24 hours, with valley areas starting out in the low to mid 40's this morning, and mountain areas in the mid 20's to mid 30's. Winds will be out of the North to 10mph this morning, but are expected to shift to become out of the South to 10mph this afternoon. High temperatures will end up in the mid to high 60's for the valley today, and in the mid 50's for most mountain areas.

Showers will return to the coast late this afternoon, and will then spread across the entire region tonight. Valley precipitation will mostly be limited to late tonight through early Thursday morning. Mountain areas will have the potential for more scattered showers on Thursday, but amounts will not be impressive. Another shot of moisture takes aim at our area on Friday. The next wave will most likely bring bigger impacts to the far Northern zones of the state, and will fizzle out as the band of moisture tracks to the South. Upwards of an inch of rain will be possible for Redding and Red Bluff through Friday night, but the remainder of the valley will likely have less than a half an inch of rain through that time. Snow levels will be between 5000' to 6000'. Snow is not expected to be very abundant, but up to 6" of snow will be possible above 6000'. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 60's for the valley from the end of this week through the start of next week.

The potential for showers will linger into our Saturday forecast, but will be very limited by that time. A break from the wet weather is expected from late Saturday through Monday. Another round of wet weather is then projected to spread across Northern California on Tuesday. Tuesday's system looks like it may have the potential to drop some decent rain totals across the region. Showers will be possible through the end of next week.

Thankfully our windy, fire danger weather pattern is coming to an end over northern California. The wind will decrease to lighter breezes late tonight through tomorrow, and our fire danger won't be quite as extreme going forward.
