First Alert Weather
The heaviest rain will be this morning as storm number two moves through also giving us gusty winds and snow on the mountain passes.
The brunt of the storm will pass early this morning when we expect the heaviest rain and strongest winds. In fact, the wind advisory will be allowed to expire at 6:00 this morning for Humboldt and Del Norte Counties and closer to 1:00 this afternoon for the valley. The winds will be from the south with gusts between 40 and 50 mph at their strongest. Although still breezy, the winds will die down through the afternoon.
The same goes for the rain and snow. The heaviest will be in the early morning hours tapering off to scattered showers and possible thunderstorms this afternoon.
There are still many chain requirements this morning on the mountain highways so be sure to click the "road conditions" link above before heading out today as conditions are not expect to improve much through the day.
Although we will be between storms on Saturday there will still be a chance for showers and even thunderstorms before the last in this series of storms moves through Saturday night into Sunday morning. This storm will bring us another round of heavy rain, low elevation snow and gusty winds. Mountain travel will continue to be a concern through the entire weekend.
We will finally be behind all of the storms we've seen this week and weekend on Monday and Tuesday of next week but there will still be some cool and unstable air in place keeping the chances for isolated showers. It will dry out and warm up starting Wednesday of next week.
