Nothing impressive develops over the next couple of days, although rain is in the forecast through Saturday over the Northern half of the State. The North coast, including the Smith and Eel river basins will see between 1.0" and 1.5" of rain Thursday night, with lighter amounts down the coast. The Northern Sierra, Feather River Basin, and Shasta areas will get about .50" by Friday morning. Sacramento will have a round of showers on Thursday night/ Friday morning. Another cool, moderately wet system crosses Friday night/ Saturday. That one will spread precip as far south as the Bay area and Yosemite, although the amounts range from 0.25" to 0.75". A big ridge of high pressure takes over thereafter. Look for a stretch of dry weather through the New Year, including a rain/snow-free New Year's Eve.

Christmas Eve Sky Show - an early Christmas gift
Dec 24, 2007
It's Christmas Eve, and you're snuggled cozily in your den. A glowing fire gently crackles and pops in the fireplace, and your head starts to droop as you nod off. Just then, something cold and wet nudges your cheek. You open your eyes to stare directly into a large black nose. It's time to take the dog for his walk.
Grumbling in vain, you put on your coat, snap the leash onto the wiggling dog's collar, open the door to a rush of cold air. You step outside and enter a magical landscape.
The night isn't dark, it's glowing with a silvery-white light. Up above, the 98% full moon looks huge and clear in the azure sky. It just might be the brightest moon you've ever seen. That's because it's the highest-riding full moon until the year 2023.
