Sacramento sees first rain since May

Downtown Sacramento saw rain for the first time since May on Sunday afternoon, creating minor flooding in some areas, the National Weather Service reported.

NWS meteorologist Travis Wilson said the downtown area received one-one-hundredth of an inch of rain – “which is basically nothing.” But some street flooding was reported due to clogged drains, he said.

But Chico experienced inch-sized hail and Roseville also got hail.

Wilson said the weather will clear by Monday in the region.

“This activity will weaken and shift up into the Sierra. Everything will slowly clear out,” he said.

The NWS reported that the Sierra Nevada received a few inches of snow, and Caltrans reported no road restrictions along I-80.
