The cold front and associated rain and wind are moving through the area right now and already dumped over an inch of rain in the coast range! Another disturbance will move through tonight but won’t dump as much rain as this cold front, but there is the potential for moderate to heavy rainfall, mainly at the coast and Cascades. Rain will continue tomorrow diminishing in activity with only a few showers into the late afternoon and all areas will be relatively dry around 9:00 Saturday evening. Rain returns late Sunday afternoon at the coast and moves inland Sunday night. We’ll see a break for most rain on Monday with spotty showers returning midweek, and temperatures into next week will remain 10 to 15 degrees below normal.
By Wednesday we could see one to two inches of rainfall in the Cascades and Siskiyous with an inch to half an inch at the coast and coast range. It won’t rain all day every day, but we will see periods of rain into next week, with the heaviest on the west side and lesser amounts on the east side. We also have a threat for thunderstorms on Saturday, mainly at the coast, northern California and west side valleys.
