A cold weather system from the Gulf of Alaska has moved into Northern California, bringing chillier temperatures and the possibility of light valley rain and Sierra snow.
The National Weather Service said the weather system is weak, but could deliver snow down to the 2,500-foot elevation level.
In the Sacramento region, the daytime high is only expected to reach 61 degrees today. That's 16 degrees cooler than the high on Wednesday.
Today will also be breezy, so bundle up. Rainfall today in Sacramento is expected to be meager: less than one-tenth of an inch.

Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
