Skies are expected to be mostly clear for New Year’s Eve fireworks in Old Sacramento - and roads will be dry for late-night drive home.
The National Weather Service is forecasting a continuation of bone-dry winter weather as a high pressure system delivers warm, rain-free conditions through the coming week. Not much change in temperature is expected, forecaster say.
Looking far into the forecasting future, weather experts from the NWS note that computer models are hinting at a breakdown in the high pressure system early next week, bringing a chance of precipitation for interior Northern California.
