Another day of sun before clouds: The sun will be shining and the breezes blowing in Sacramento on Thursday before a small storm system moves into Northern California.

The high Thursday in Sacramento is expected to be around 70 degrees, with gusts to 23 mph.

Infant found: A search for a 3-week-old baby in a Yolo County slough on Wednesday ended with the discovery of the lifeless body of the infant by a sheriff’s patrol unit in a boat. Yolo County deputies said that the body of little Justice Rees was discovered at 9:50 a.m. after many hours of searching. Deputies were being forced to cut through brush to get to the body of the infant.

Internment camp tales told: Each year, thousands of students pile out of buses pull to the front of the museum at 1020 O St. to take part in the “Time of Remembrance Field Trip Program" which includes the “Uprooted! Japanese Americans During WWII” exhibit at the California Museum in Sacramento
