Clear, Breezy and Sunny Saturday
Redding, Red Bluff, Chico
Sunny and breezy weather today, temperatures start on a warming trend.
We are back under dominating high pressure in Northern California. That means lots of sunny skies and slowly warming temperatures through the week. We start today with a few widely scattered showers in the mountains to the extreme north and west. Most of these will stay in Siskiyou and Trinity Counties, but a few may make their way into northwest Shasta County and could give a few sprinkles here and there. For the valley and the rest of the NorthState, it will be another gorgeous near-spring day. Temperatures will rise into the low 60s today. A passing weak system will kick the winds up slightly and could gust over 25mph at times.
We aren’t expecting much of a change in the next several days. High pressure will dominate the west coast keeping any rain firmly up to the north. That’s good news for sun-lovers, but very bad news for our official rainfall totals. Redding is currently 3.4 inches below average for this wet season, and has only received 1.51 inches of rain since January 1st – which puts us 8.8 inches down on this calendar year.
