Action News Now Forecast

It was a nice getaway Friday in the Valley, with mild temperatures and sunshine. Showers and thunderstorms returned to the mountains Friday afternoon, and look for those throughout the North State on Saturday night!

It was more of the same on Friday... warm temperatures and mostly sunny skies in the Valley, and afternoon showers and thunderstorms in the mountains. Models are indicating a thunderstorm or two could develop near Redding in the evening, and track southward to near Chico & Oroville around Midnight. We'll track that on Action News Now at 4, 5, 6, 10 and 11pm tonight! The rest of the Valley should be dry, and the remaining showers and thunderstorms in the mountains should dry up overnight.

There's a chance of a Saturday morning shower in Butte County, but it won't be much... if anything at all. The rest of the day looks mostly dry and partly cloudy, and the rest of the Valley should be dry as well! With Valley highs in the upper 70's, our Saturday is looking pretty good.

But it all changes after that. Rain will move in around dinnertime Saturday, and that should linger through most of the night. Saturday night doesn't look like a good night to hit the Silver Dollar Fair in Chico, in fact it might just be a good night to pop some popcorn and watch a movie at home as the rain comes down outside.

Sunday should start dry, but showers and possibly a thunderstorm should move back into the North State Sunday afternoon. It'll be a much cooler day, with Valley highs only in the upper 60's!

We'll dry up by Memorial Day, although enough clouds will linger to call it partly cloudy. We'll begin to warm back up, with Valley highs warming to the middle 70's by late in the afternoon.

The sunshine will return by Tuesday, and we'll heat back up quick. Valley highs will reach the low to middle 80's on Tuesday, the middle 80's by Wednesday, and into the upper 80's both Thursday and Friday. Enjoy the cooler weather we'll see this weekend, because the late Spring heat will be coming our way soon!





he good news is much cooler weather returns during the week.  Monday still looks like a HOT one with a few of those 100° temps sticking around, but temps look a lot better for the rest of the week.  Delta Breeze pattern starts to setup into Tuesday and should stick around throughout the work week.  That will help drop us about 10-15° from Monday into Tuesday.  We may even see a couple 80° high temps for the 4th of July and the following day.  

Stay COOL and be mindful of the HIGH FIRE DANGER!!!
