The mini-storm that swept through Northern California on Tuesday has come and gone.
Today's weather is expected to be sunny in Sacramento with a daytime high in the upper 50s after a chilly morning of freezing-to-near-freezing temperatures.
The upper level low pressure system that produced the wet and snowy weather on Tuesday moved into Southern California, according to the National Weather Service. It will move east into Arizona today.
Rainfall totals in the Sacramento area: .24 in Elk Grove, .26 in Sacramento, .32 in Rancho Cordova, .28 in Fair Oaks, .28 in Orangevale, .29 in Rio Linda, .43 along Deer Creek outside Folsom and .15 in Roseville.
Ski resorts this morning were reporting five inches of new snow in the Sierra from the storm.
The National Weather Service reported two tornadoes and a gustnado over parts of the northern Central Valley Tuesday afternoon. Twister damage was reported to the roof of a barn near Los Molinos, Tehama County.
The weather service says that a gustnado is a slang term for "a short-lived, ground-based, shallow, vortex that develops on a gust front associated with either thunderstorms or showers."
They may only rise 30 to 300 feet above the ground and be accompanied by rain.
Wind speeds can reach 60 to 80 mph, resulting in damage.
