Still watching rain and wind across the NorthState, the heavy stuff is on its way tonight.
Another very strong system will move in overnight tonight bringing with it up to 10 inches of rain in locations in the mountains. A few areas where training storms set up could see over 15 inches of rain today alone in addition to the rain they received from Wednesday onward. This storm will bring very heavy rains and very strong winds. The National Weather Service has a Wind Advisory out for most of NorCal with flood advisories and scattered flood warnings in effect through tomorrow afternoon.
Areas that have seen training storms are continuing to see the training storms set up over them. Whiskeytown, City of Shasta Lake and locations along I-5 North through O’Brien have seen upwards of 10 inches of rain and could see an additional 5-10 inches today. The other area getting slammed are the mountains East of Chico…the mountains East of Paradise have picked up over 10 inches of rain so far and will likely receive an additional 10 inches from this next storm. Initial forecasts are for Paradise to receive an additional 8 inches from this next storm system moving in, and higher elevations will get more than that. We’ll be monitoring this storm very closely and will keep you up to date on the latest developments.
