The latest on this weekend's storm

More rain is coming, which is an exceedingly good thing. From the National Weather Service:
Sunday Weather System to Impact Marathon and Mountain Travel

Impacts

Rain to impact California International Marathon
Snow along and north of I-80 will impact travel

Forecast Confidence
Medium

Timing and Strength
Rain late Saturday night through Sunday afternoon
Amounts generally less than 0.50" north of I-80, with up to 1.00" possible in the northern-most portions of the valley
Snow above 4000 feet north and 5000 feet along I-80 Sunday
Heaviest snow anticipated in the morning hours Sunday

Weather Summary

Our next weather system is expected to move into the area late Saturday through Sunday. This is a weaker system overall, but can still impact travel over the mountain passes on Sunday. Rain may also impact the California International Marathon on Sunday morning. Participants and spectators should plan for wet and cool weather.

System will quickly exit the region by Sunday night.
No word on whether rain will arrive in time for Saturday night's Redding parade, but if it comes late in the evening, the parade should be spared.
