Weather Forecast: Another Storm Approaches The Northstate
Redding, Chico, Red Bluff
While the folks on the east coast deal with Hurricane Sandy we will be experiencing more dry and mild weather on the west coast. Highs on Tuesday are expected to be in the mid to upper 70’s under mostly sunny skies. The timing of the approaching storm is still a little uncertain as the forecast models are bringing it through at dramatically different times. While one of the forecast models holds off until Thursday (NAM) the other models (GFS, EURO, RPM) bring it in sooner. At this point, we’re going to keep the first part of the day on Wednesday dry with an increasing chance for showers as we go into the evening hours. There is still a chance the trick or treaters may be able to stay dry especially the kids who start early.
The heaviest rain looks to fall Wednesday night into Thursday morning before tapering off to isolated showers by the afternoon. This storm does not look as impressive as last week’s storm with on average a half of an inch of rain (give or take) and snow levels well above 5000 feet.
By Friday high pressure starts to build back over the Northstate with the return of mostly sunny skies and temperatures climbing back up to the 70’s through the beginning of next week.
