Rain showers will intensify overnight.

Moderate rain will start to fall in the valley in the early morning hours tomorrow and will continue throughout the day.  The heaviest rain will fall in the valley from noon onwards as the main band of subtropical moisture makes it to the NorthState.  Temperatures will remain relatively mild and the moisture’s subtropical origin precludes any low snow levels, so expect them around 6,000 feet north and west and nearer to 7,000 feet south and east of Redding.  Those snow levels will fall to about 5,000 feet north and west and to near 6,000 feet south and east of the valley as the system pulls out pre-dawn on Monday.  As the system departs there could be a few thunderstorms, but most will have more bark than bite.

The rest of the week is looking truly glorious.  From Monday afternoon onwards the biggest danger is some gusty wind on Tuesday where winds could peak around 30mph.  After that high pressure takes hold and allows the temperatures to steadily climb with a high of 80° in Redding by Saturday.
