Rain will slow down a bit as we go through Wednesday, but probably won’t stop all together as our area braces for yet another atmospheric river storm which will come though the region on Thursday. We do have an Areal Flood Warning across the region, which really only applies to the small streams and streets here and there. Most of the mainstem rivers will approach but probably not exceed flood stage, with the exception of the Feather, Susanville and Pitt rivers to the north, where moderate flooding is likely. Snow levels will remain above 8,000’ through Thursday before dropping back to near Lake Tahoe on Friday. Scattered showers on Friday could dribble into Saturday morning, but there is a drying and clearing trend once we get into the weekend into the first of next week.

Temperatures will be quite mild through Thursday, topping out in the low 60s before falling back into the mid-50s Friday and then the 40s through the weekend.

Even though snow levels are very high, you can still expect to see occasional mountain pass closures and delays due to avalanche controls and possible mudslides.
