No rain is expected Tuesday -- and any precipitation from a weather front on Wednesday is expected to be light, according to the National Weather Service.
A weakening weather system is expected to bring showers to Northern California after midnight and through Wednesday. Until then, look for Sacramento to have a cloudy Tueday with a mild 75 degrees for the high temperature.
October doesn’t usually provide much in the way of rainfall. Normally Sacramento gets about a inch of rain. The city has received 0.44 of an inch so far this month when light showers fell on Oct. 3 and Oct. 17.
