A feeble weather system is expected to pass through Northern California on Wednesday, delivering a slight chance of rain to Sacramento and a little bit of snow to the Sierra Nevada.
Pack the rain gear just in case an afternoon shower pops up. The National Weather Service pegs the chance of rain at 30 percent on Wednesday in Sacramento.
After today, the region heads into a dry spell six days long. It looks like the sun will be shining in Sacramento before the Super Bowl if Peyton Manning or Cam Newton wannabes want to toss a football around in the street.
