Sacramento will see a wet week as a series of low-pressure systems move across Northern California.
“Most of this week is going to be wet with brief breaks in between each wave of storms,” said Brooke Bingaman, a forecaster with the National Weather Service.
The action will begin Sunday afternoon, when a 40 percent chance of rain is expected for downtown. After a brief break Monday afternoon, Bingaman said, a second storm arriving that evening could bring half an inch of rain for the region. That storm will be closely followed by a separate low-pressure system that moves in Thursday.
“Friday is probably the best bet in terms of being dry, but another wave comes on Saturday,” Bingaman said.
While the rainfall is good news, Bingaman said the precipitation is still below average for the water year that began Oct. 1. Sacramento has had 3.62 inches for the season, but normal would be around 7.22 inches, she said.
