Barbecuing your turkey outdoors this Thanksgiving? It'll be fine weather for it.
Thursday will be partly sunny and clear with a high of 66 degrees in the Sacramento area, according to the National Weather Service.
Two storm systems swept through Sacramento Valley since Friday, bringing a total of 1.12 inches of rain to downtown Sacramento, said meteorologist Drew Peterson.
Snow was still falling Sunday morning in the high Sierra Nevada mountain passes, where the snow level remained around 5,500 feet, but precipitation was forecast to taper off, with only a few showers lingering in the afternoon on the west slopes.
While the next couple days will be dry and clear, a third system is expected to bring rain late Tuesday night and clearing Wednesday. Snow levels for that system will be 7,500 feet, Peterson said.
"No one should have any trouble getting over the Sierra, so if you have relatives coming over the mountains for the holidays, they should be good to go," he said. Temperatures will hold relatively steady in the mid-60s next week also, Peterson said.
The weather service is predicting a 40-percent chance of rain on Tuesday night and Wednesday, with only a slight chance of rain carrying over that night.
Friday will be mostly sunny with a high near 67 degrees.
