We're moving into another stormy couple of days, with a Winter Storm Watch Thursday afternoon through Friday for Eastern Shasta County, Eastern Butte, Western Plumas County and across the Western slope of the Sierra.

What this means is hazardous mountain travel if you're heading into 6000 feet or higher Thursday through late Friday night.

Snow is expected to begin Thursday afternoon, picking up into the evening.

Heavy snow and gusty winds are forecast Friday afternoon, and won't die down until late over overnight Friday or Saturday.

As for how much? Some areas will get about 8 inches to 2 feet.

if you're on the roads this weekend, look out for snow, sleet or ice.

Any shower activity today will remain on the light side and mainly over mountains north of interstate 80.

Thursday is when we see the next low pressure system moves in off the Pacific Northwest.

We'll likely see just light rain Thursday and Thursday night.

In the valleys and foothills, the storm has enough instability that again we'll see a chance for thunderstorms.

Flooding will be possible but not expected.

Thursday night and early Friday we may see a Wind Advisory go out as the front passes through.

Saturday morning may be a bit drier, and Sunday into Monday looks like light rain over the foothills and mountains, drying out by Wednesday.
