High Clouds Show More Rain in our Future

Beautiful weather today gives way to more rain tomorrow.

High pressure overhead will allow for temperatures to peak in the 70s across northern California.  There will be some high level clouds just to make things pretty, but otherwise it’ll be a very nice day.  Our high level clouds are an indicator of things to come though, as another band of subtropical moisture will pass through Sunday night into Monday morning.  This band could produce up to 3+ inches of rain for the mountains north of Redding, and about an inch in the valley.  This system will be a 2 pronged attack as the main batch of moisture will be generally light to moderate stratiform rain and the 2nd batch will be part of the frontal passage and could contain some thunderstorms like we saw a few days ago.  I’m not expecting any severe storms, just some lightning, thunder, small hail and gusty winds.

After that rolls through the winds will kick up out of the north allowing for temperatures to climb once again and our skies to clear as high pressure builds in off the ocean.  Highs could climb back to near 70 mid week next week and we’re pretty much sunny all the way through next weekend.
