Rain will stick around for the rest of today and most of tomorrow. Showers continue through the middle of next week.
An upper level system will keep steady and heavy rain across most of the NorthState today and tomorrow. There will be some breaks as there are several systems moving through but don’t expect more than a few hours of rainless daylight. The clouds could thin briefly during the transition period from one storm to another, but the best we’ll get could be a few patches of brief sunlight before thicker clouds and showers return later this afternoon.
With all the cloud cover and rain we’ll struggle to make it out of the 50’s today. Redding will peak right at 60 with both Red Bluff and Chico topping out at 58. Tomorrow looks very similar as well, although we’ll see the temperatures drop slightly as a colder system moves overhead. Snow levels for both systems this weekend will remain relatively high at 6,000-7,000 feet. They will be dropping to 5,000 feet tonight into Sunday morning with the cooler system approaching.
Next week we still don’t completely break out of the clouds. The upper level low keeps lots of clouds around along with cooler temperatures and rain showers through the first part of the Thanksgiving week. This is due to several weak surface systems which will loop around the upper level system, bringing us reinforcing shots of slightly cooler temperatures and showers.
