Mainly dry Monday and Tuesday
The next weather maker is now over the Gulf of Alaska slowly approaching Northern California but the main impacts from this storm will not be here until Wednesday.
Until then, it will be mainly dry Monday with a chance for a late afternoon shower in the northern end of the valley. There will be a better chance for showers on Tuesday but nothing heavy is expected.
Snow levels Monday and Tuesday will average between 1,000 and 2,000 feet continuing with the threat for more chain requirements for some of the lower mountain passes. As always, if you will be travelling in the mountains the next few days, be sure to check the latest road conditions before heading out.
Heavier rain and gusty winds across all of Northern California can be expected on Wednesday. With cold air already in place there is a chance for some snow in Redding and possibly Red Bluff in the early morning hours on Wednesday. However, it will be a small window because warmer air will quickly take over as we go through the morning hours eventually bringing snow levels above 2,000 feet.
Unsettled weather continues Thursday through Saturday with snow levels around 2,000 feet but could be locally lower.
At this point it looks like drier weather on Sunday and lasting into early next week.
