Grab that jacket and umbrella before you head out the door this morning. Heavy rain, and below average temperatures are ahead for Northern California today. Rain has spread across the Northern Mountains into the Western half of the valley overnight. The heaviest rain has tracked as far East as Shasta, Tehama, and Glenn Counties early this morning, with light showers brushing across Butte County. Rain will continue to make it's way Eastward this morning, and the entire region will have rain by around 10am. Valley areas are starting out in the high 50's to low 60's, and are only expected to top out in the low 60's later today. Mountain areas have dipped into the mid 40's to low 50's, and will mostly top out in the mid 50's later this afternoon. Winds will be out of the South to around 15mph, with gusts to 30mph for the Northern end of the valley, and the Sierra today.
More rain will be ahead for the next several days, and temperatures will stay close to what we have today. There does look like there will be a short break in the rain on the way for Halloween, but we can't rule out the potential for heavy rain on Monday just yet. Winds will have the potential to gust up to around 40 to 50mph out of the South by Sunday, and snow levels could dip to around 6500' on Sunday as well. Make sure to give yourself extra time to get to where you're going today, and have a great Thursday!
