Weather Forecast: Wind Advisory for the Valley
Redding, Chico, Red Bluff
We’ve got one more storm to contend with before we dry things out around here and see a little more sunshine. Most of the rain has been caught up on the coast and into the coastal range but as the next cold front approaches we will see increasing amounts of rain move in throughout the day on Tuesday. From now until the end of the day on Wednesday the valley is expected to pick up between and inch and an inch and a half of rain. The heaviest rain looks to fall somewhere between noon and 3:00 on Tuesday with a chance for a few isolated thunderstorms. Much like Saturday, if you get caught under a thunderstorm you could be dealing with brief periods of heavy rain, lighting and small hail. Snow levels look to be above 6000 feet.
This storm is also expected to bring strong winds with it as well blowing from the south at about 20 to 30 mph and gusts between 35 and 40 mph in the valley. The mountains could see gusts between 40 and 50 mph and possibly higher over some of the ridges.
The moderate to heavy rain will taper off to isolated showers by Tuesday evening with a continued chance for isolated sprinkles/light showers through the day on Wednesday. By Thanksgiving Day the rain will be out of here and we will be left with partly cloudy skies with highs in the low to mid 60’s and is expected to stay that way through the weekend.
