A weather system even weaker than the one that disappointed over the weekend is forecast to move through Sacramento overnight.

The weekend rain that forecasters optimistically predicted might bring around a tenth of an inch of rain, delivered only a hundredth of an inch in Sacramento. That brings February rainfall to an even 3 inches.

The oncoming weather system may bring light precipitation amounts over the northern mountains and northern Sierra Nevada, but not much more, according to the National Weather Service. The forecast for Sacramento is for nada, zero, zilch measurable rainfall.

Then, the rainfall season’s old enemy, high pressure, starts to rebuild over the area by mid-day Wednesday.

The detailed, 7-day forecast from the NWS for the Sacramento region:

Today: Partly sunny, with a high near 65. Calm wind becoming northwest around 5 mph in the morning.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 46. South wind 3 to 5 mph.
