As the cold front moved through Wednesday night we saw isolated showers and thunderstorms with periods of heavy rain, small hail, gusty winds and lightning. Redding saw a peak gust from the south of 44 mph Wednesday evening while Red Bluff peaked at 35 mph. It's still expected to be breezy at least through the first half of the day on Thursday before they die down as we approach the evening hours.
Off and on showers will continue through the day on Thursday before we dry things out on Friday and Saturday with highs in the low 70s under partly cloudy skies.
The long range forecast models are hinting at more rain by Sunday and Monday but at this point doesn’t look all that impressive.
