Weather Forecast: More Rain On The Way
Redding, Chico, Red Bluff
It turned out to be another mild day on Thursday but because of the added cloud cover temperatures were about 5 to 10 degrees cooler than Wednesday. These clouds are in advance of the approaching storm that will eventually bring us rain showers through the day on Friday. The next storm is expected to arrive Saturday night bringing us another round of light to moderate rain showers. At this point we’ll probably see a break from the rain on Sunday minus a few isolated showers here and there.
All of next week is looking unsettled meaning there will be a mixture of sun, clouds and rain showers. An area of low pressure will sit off the coast of the Pacific Northwest and pump in one disturbance after another into Northern California. The timing and intensity of these storms is yet to be determined because there is a lack of consistency in the forecast models. Whether or not it will rain on Thanksgiving is still up in the air (no pun intended) at this point but hopefully as we get closer to next week the forecast models will start giving us a better idea of what to expect. Stay tuned.
As far as snow levels are concerned, we are expecting them to generally be between 5000 and 6000 feet through the entire period. This means only the highest mountain passes could create problems for some of the holiday travelers.
