Weather Forecast: Valley T-Storms And Mountain Snow
Redding Chico, Red Bluff
Thursday was a prime example of isolated showers and thunderstorms as some places got pounded with accumulating hail while others only saw a trace to a few hundredths of an inch of rain. It was the same story in the mountains as well with some just seeing a trace of snow with other getting over 6 inches.
There are still Winter Weather Advisories in the mountains for elevations mainly above 3000 feet. For more details click the link: http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/sto/. There is a good chance many of the mountain passes will have snow so be sure to check the latest road conditions before you head out: http://www.krcrtv.com/weather/road-conditions.
The rain and snow will start to taper off as we go into the late night hours, in fact, it looks like we may start Friday off with partly cloudy skies and mainly dry conditions. Even though it will still be cold, the heating of the day will help to possibly spark up a few isolated showers and thunderstorms in the valley with isolated snow flurries in the mountains down to at least 2000 feet if not lower in some areas.
The weekend looks dry for now with highs in the mid 50’s and lower 60’s. We could be looking at another slight chance for showers on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
