No need to bring an umbrella today, but if you are going out for dinner tonight, don’t be surprised by a few sprinkles.
A weak weather system approaching the coast could bring a few raindrops once the sun goes down. While the sun shines, the weather is expected to be mostly cloudy but dry with a high of 73 degrees predicted for Friday in Sacramento.
The weekend looks very nice with temperatures in the 70s with light winds. That’s perfect weather for a trip to Apple Hill, although weekend crowds can be heavier than a lug of Granny Smiths.
The National Weather System is forecasting a Monday weather system that should be wetter than tonight’s.
