Happy Thursday Sacramento,
Well, that’s more like it. A genuine Sacramento Valley rainstorm soaked the region Wednesday night.
While the rainfall totals were not overwhelming, they were significant for just one night. Sacramento got .42 of an inch rain and out in the suburbs, Fair Oaks received .75 of an inch.
It seems the accumulation depended on what cloud a community was under last night as the blustery winds and heavy rain at times made driving difficult. Traffic was flowing freely and without much difficulty Thursday morning as most drivers took notice of the rain slick roads and left distance between cars.

Showers are forecast today, but the next shot of sizable rain is slated to hit Friday morning and is expected to drop about an inch of rain in Sacramento.
Up in the mountains, snow continued to fall Thursday. Snow showers were forecast to continue throughout the day at the resort where 8-10 inches of snow fell overnight. Temperatures were expected to range in the upper 20s to the low 30s with moderate-to-strong winds. The resort noted on its website that winds might affect ski lift operations.here www.sacbee.com speaks on Channel 10
