A Very Snowy and Rainy Christmas Day, Sun Returns for Thursday
Redding, Red Bluff, Chico
A wet and snowy Christmas for everyone in the NorthState, rain and snow ends tomorrow.
Another storm is moving through northern California with rain in the valley and snow in the higher elevations. Winter storm warnings are posted for elevations above 1500 ft on all sides of the valley where we’re expecting an additional 3-6 inches of snow and 1-2 feet more above 4,000 feet. In the vally we’ll see a very cold rain falling throughout the day. Temps will stay in the upper 30’s to low 40’s in Redding where rain may briefly mix with snow, no accumulation is expected. We’ll see the rain start to wrap itself up tonight and completely end tomorrow afternoon, with lingering snow showers in the mountains. The sun will return for Thursday.
Friday we’re tracking a strong upper level system that doesn’t seem to have much connection to the surface. This means we’ll see clouds and a few showers, but initial models don’t seem to have much by way of precip right now. We’ll keep a close eye on this and the following ridge which could bump temperatures back into the 50’s for Monday.
