Another dry day is forecast for Northern California as flowers are placed on the graves of veterans and salutes are briskly delivered as old glory passes in parade.

The weather will be good for remembering veterans at outdoor ceremonies all over the Sacramento region. The high on Tuesday is expected to be 67 degrees in Sacramento.

While today’s weather will be mild and without rain, the forecast calls for a change Wednesday night. Clouds will increase on Wednesday and temperatures will cool with an approaching cold front, according to the National Weather Service.

The main band of precipitation is expected to occur Wednesday night and continue into Thursday. Rain in the Sacramento region from the quick-hitting, mini-storm is expected to range from a tenth to a quarter of an inch.

On Friday, there could be some lingering showers over the mountains. However, the rest of the region will return to the dry conditions that have characterized the fall, according to the NWS.
