Showers by mid-week in Sacramento?

High temperatures on Monday are expected to be above normal again, but the weather is trending cooler and perhaps wetter.

The high on Sunday was 79 degrees in Sacramento, which is a good 10 degrees warmer than average for the second week in November. The high today is also expected to be abnormally warm with a high of 75 degrees forecast.

However, by mid-week, the National Weather Service is calling for a change in the weather, but not a drastic one. Forecasters say that Wednesday and Thursday could be cooler and wetter as an incoming system brings showers to Northern California.

Sacramento has received less than an inch of rainfall so for this season, which is about half of normal for Nov. 11. The NWS is forecasting that the Wednesday night rain will be light.
