Rain continues to move through the Sacramento Valley tonight as a second wave of wet weekend weather hits the region.
The Sacramento region can expect another quarter-inch to half-inch of rain Saturday night into Sunday as precipitation moves inland before skies begin to clear, said Idamis Del Valle, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Sacramento.
The Sacramento area picked up .61 inches of rainfall over the last 24 hours, but the rain totals climbed in the higher elevations with anywhere from 1 inch in foothill communities to more than 3 inches falling in the Sierra, Del Valle said.
Meantime, the wet weather has forecasters watching the burn scarred areas of Lake County, where a small stream flood advisory is in effect for the Valley Fire burn scar area until 10:45 p.m. Saturday.
Forecasters are also keeping an eye on the area of the extinguished Emerald Fire in El Dorado County, where National Weather Service forecasters in Reno issued a flash flood warning until 11:45 p.m., saying rock slides and debris flows are possible after 2 inches of rainfall Friday evening and an expected 1-2 inches of additional rainfall Saturday night.
