The worst of the stormy weather in Del Norte County ended in time for Thanksgiving.

A chance of renewed rain is forecast for Friday afternoon to Saturday night, and the early part of next week is expected to be dry.

Some parts of Del Norte have been saturated with more than 10 inches of rain since Saturday.

Crescent City received 6 inches, Smith River 10.3 and Gasquet 9 inches, said Bryan Caffrey, a meteorologist for the Eureka National Weather Service.

Gusts in Gasquet reached 70 mph around 6 a.m.

There were several reports to the Sheriff's Dispatch on Monday about downed trees from North Bank Road to Elk Valley Road to theprison area.

The Park Service didn't find any trees fall on roadways on its usualchecks following storms, but there was a report of a tree branch that fell on U.S. Highway 199 near Walker Road that was blocking the roadway around 6 p.m. Monday.

The California Highway Patrol reported no weather-related accidents.
