Partly sunny skies are forecast for Thanksgiving in the Sacramento region as the main threat from an expected weather system appears to be headed for the central coast and Southern California.
An upper level low pressure system is predicted to drop southeast off the coast of California on Thanksgiving, according to the National Weather Service.
Depending on how the weak weather system from the Gulf of Alaska moves, a few showers could dampen the southern Sacramento Valley and northern San Joaquin Valley, the foothills and the Sierra, forecasters said.
Travel conditions in the state are expected to be good on Wednesday as Northern California is bathed in sunshine. On Thanksgiving morning, temperatures will be cool for the thousands of runners and walkers on the start line in Sacramento for the Run to Feed the Hungry.
