About 95 from Redding to Sacramento: Snow in Sierras is bound to melt a lot this week!

I have never seen Shasta Dam more full than today driving across the bridge on my way down to Redding on Interstate 5 today. By Redding it had already climbed to around 95 and stayed that way past Sacramento too so obviously the snow is going to melt some this week and flooding some places from 190% of normal snow pack likely is inevitable. It was beautiful out all the way down but here is the strangest thing about weather lately: It's supposed to snow at 3500 feet in Mt. Shasta on Friday!

Also, almost 84 degrees Fahrenheit today in the little city of Mt. Shasta at 3500 feet elevation.
