Sunny and Warm Monday, Cool and Rainy Tues-Thurs
Redding, Red Bluff, Chico
Tomorrow will simply amazing, but the sunny weather runs out for Tuesday and Wednesday.
The temperatures will jump into the upper 60s in the valley tomorrow. The abundant sunshine and light winds will make it feel great outside to start the week, but after that things change for the wetter.
Another ocean system moves in during the day on Tuesday with lots of clouds, wind and rain. Tuesday will start with patchy sun and will quickly become completely overcast with rain starting in the valley from north to south around noon. The heaviest rain will move through Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night. The next batch of rain will move in early Wednesday morning with lower snow levels – around 3,000ft – and gusty winds.
Thursday will see some clearing but that’s a double edged sword. As the clouds clear the chance for thunderstorms will greatly increase. This is because a very cold pool of air will hang over the NorthState as the system moves inland. These thunderstorms could have some small hail and isolated downpours as well as gusty winds and lightning. This system doesn’t look like it will produce any tornados at this point, but we’ll keep a close eye on any strong looking storms as they happen.
Friday could see more isolated thunderstorms, but there’s less of a chance for them on Friday. After that, high pressure finally builds back in and will allow us to warm up again. We could be talking 80 degrees by next Sunday. We’ll let you know.
