Low snow levels for NorCal on Thursday

The National Weather Service predicts it's likely that snow will fall Thursday in Redding, Calif., with accumulation of less than a half-inch during the day and another half-inch Thursday night. In fact, the weather service predicts an outside chance of snow for Red Bluff.

Kathy Hoxsie, the weather service's warning coordinator in Sacramento, told me today that she expects this persistent parade of weather systems in California to last at least until early to mid-March. Then once we dry out a bit, another week or two of storms could arrive in April or early May, she said.

Here is the February and seasonal rainfall totals and comparisons to normal for Redding and other selected California cities, according to the NWS. Totals are as of Monday:
Redding: Month to date 3.42 inches (normal 4.16 inches); season to date 20.93 inches (normal 22.29 inches)
Sacramento: Month to date 2.06 inches (normal 2.70 inches); season to date 13.12 inches (normal 12.54 inches)
Stockton: Month to date 1.68 inches (normal 1.89 inches); season to date 10.49 inches (normal 9.44 inches)
Modesto: Month to date 1.89 inches (normal 1.82 inches); season to date 9.39 inches (normal 8.67 inches)
Salinas: Month to date 2.48 inches (normal 1.87 inches); season to date 9.92 inches (normal 8.69 inches)
