Sunshine, blue skies endure over NorCal

While much of the nation shivers in the deep freeze, Sacramento and much of Northern California remain sunny and mild for the coming week.

Sunday’s high was 65 degrees in Sacramento, 3 degrees shy of the record 68 set only two years ago, according to National Weather Service forecaster Johnnie Powell. On Monday and Tuesday, look for highs of up to 64 degrees, he said.

A slight possibility of rain remains in the forecast for Tuesday.

“That means there’s less than a 20 percent chance of rain, and if it does rain, less than one-tenth of an inch will fall,” Powell said. “At this stage, we’ll take any precipitation that falls from the sky.”
