As a thunderstorm rolls overhead here in the Twin Cities, let’s head out west to Redding, CA, where there’s a far lower chance they’re experiencing thunderstorms.
At 835pm PDT, the temperature at Redding, CA was 75 degrees under fair skies. The remnants of a tropical system shifting up the west side of Baja California is spreading significant rains into the Desert Southwest, causing some localized flooding in far Southern CA and northern AZ. An upper-level low pressure system is sitting offshore the Pacific Northwest currently and looks to drop down over northern CA over the next 36 hours. At the surface, a low-pressure area looks to develop over NV/UT, enhancing the showers/thunderstorms developing over the Western US as the 2 weather features phase together, causing some areas of stronger rain/thunderstorms in eastern NV/UT then spreading northwards over ID/MT. Luckily, all of this activity is likely to stay east of Redding, and outside of just some high clouds, the next couple days will be rather pleasant!

Here we see some high clouds over the area shifting off to the northeast, with some more significant activity over Nevada, kicking up a couple scattered showers. Precip shifting over the Southwest will stay far away from the Redding area, leading to pleasant weather as we head into the later part of the week.
