Showers taper off tonight and clouds will clear into the overnight hours only to quickly return as will the showers. The majority of the precipitation will be in northern California with peak storm activity further south in southern California. Southern Oregon will be on the northern fringe of shower activity and most will see only light isolated showers Friday into Saturday while the Mt. Shasta area will see periods of moderate to heavy rain. A Wind Advisory continues until 10pm Thursday for the Shasta Valley though winds will be breezy again Friday for this area, but winds will be lighter than yesterday and today with gusts potentially up to 30mph.

Things will dry out during the day Saturday into early Sunday, the break is brief as a stronger storm system moves into southern Oregon Sunday afternoon at the coast and push inland through the evening bringing rain and wind. The storm track Sunday into next week is going to be centered more so over southern Oregon than this week’s storms and northern California will see lighter precipitation accumulations, while southern Oregon will see moderate to heavy rain. Snow levels look to remain above pass level through the period, but we will see more snow for Mt. Ashland and Mt. Shasta.
