After a fairly wet day for most of the Northstate on Wednesday the main stream of moisture has since then shifted to the south drying things out. There may still be a few snow flurries in the Sierra and may extend as far north as Lassen and Plumas Counties. Click here for the latest Winter Storm Watches and Warnings.
As expected some of us came out with a lot more rain than others. Redding, Chico and Oroville received between .25 and .34 inches of rain while Red Bluff only saw .05 inches. Orland, Corning and Gridley measured trace amounts.
The dry weather pattern will return on Thursday and will stick around through all of next week. We will also see a gradual increase in our temperatures climbing back up to the mid to upper 60’s by the middle of next week.
The long range forecast models have been fairly consistent the last few days with a wet weather pattern setting up in about a week and a half to two weeks. There are no guarantees at this point but at least there is hope for more substantial rain in the future.
