Today we will see widespread mid to upper 70s for the valley floor. Redding & Red Bluff's record highs today are both 80 degrees, close but we'll likely fall short. Chico's record high is 79 degrees, one city that may come close to their record.
We have another weak storm heading our way which is expected to be here on Saturday giving us an increasing chance for light showers throughout the day with the heaviest activity moving through Saturday evening. This storm is a little stronger than the one that moved through Thursday night. Based on surface observations the valley didn’t see any measurable rain, however, this next system may bring us a few hundredths of an inch at best. Snow levels will be above 6000 feet.
Sunday and Monday will be transition days with highs in the upper 60’s to right around 70 degrees under mostly sunny skies. The timing of the next and stronger storm is still up in the air (no pun intended) but could be here as early as Tuesday and lasting through at least Wednesday with a chance for a few lingering showers on Thursday. Although it will be the most rain we’ve seen in a while it’s still not the most impressive of storms but for now we’ll take what we can get.
Drier and warmer weather is expected after Thursday of next week.
