LATEST FORECAST

Action News Now Forecast

Our first big storms of the season are heading our way, and the first one will arrive on Wednesday! The rain will continue on Thanksgiving and Friday, with south winds picking up and getting gusty on Thanksgiving. Look for the stormy weather to clear just in time for the weekend.

We had a few small storms in early October, but finally... much bigger storms are coming our way. The first one arrives on Wednesday!

Look for the rain to begin Wednesday morning, and pick up a bit in the afternoon. This won't be a huge storm, but most Valley locations are looking at around 1/2" to 3/4" of rain. Winds will remain fairly light, and snow levels should start around 5000' but rise to near 6000' later in the day.

We'll get a bit of a lull in the stormy weather on Thanksgiving morning. A new surge of moisture will arrive that afternoon, and this will bring heavier rain our way. Snow levels should hover around 5500', and the south winds will really pick up... look for gusts near 40 mph! It will be a wet and windy finish to our Thanksgiving.

Black Friday looks just as stormy, although the winds will diminish through the day. Rain should continue for most of the day, with snow levels near 6000'. All said and done, Valley locations are looking at 1" to 3" of rain between Wednesday and Friday, with higher totals in the mountains.

The rain should taper off Friday night, and the Valley should be dry this weekend... although a few mountain showers are possible on Saturday.

Mudslides will be a possibility for the next few months near the Camp, Carr, Delta, Hirz, and Mendocino Complex fire burn scars. The heaviest rain should be Thanksgiving night, and the steepest slopes will be the ones prone to mudslides. Be very careful in these areas during rain, especially at night!

The upcoming weekend looks dry, and so does Monday. A weaker storm will bring us showers next Tuesday.

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!!!
