Today’s temperatures are expected to be warm and skies clear, there could be some stormy changes mid-week in Northern California.

The National Weather Service is predicting that a low-pressure system will move through the region during the middle of the week, perhaps bringing breezy conditions, cooler temperatures and some valley rain and Sierra snow. Relatively low moisture levels should minimize snow and rain amounts.

So far, the chance of rain in the Sacramento region is pegged at 20 percent on Wednesday, but forecasters say that could change.

Today: Sunny, with a high temperature near 84. Light and variable wind becoming southwest 5 to 7 mph in the afternoon.
