Weak storm waves predicted for the north state are not expected to pack the punch produced by the atmospheric rivers that soaked Sacramento in January and February.
March is normally drier than the first two months of the year, but spring, which begins Monday, will debut on the rainy side.
Rainfall amounts this weekend are expected to be less than 0.1 inches in the Sacramento Valley. Snow is expected to fall above 7,500 feet. Next week’s showers in Sacramento might also be accompanied by thunderstorms, the National Weather Service predicts.
