One little weather system down and two more to go.

The weather front that moved through on Wednesday dropped 0.10 inches of rain in Sacramento. The next system should arrive Thursday afternoon and deliver about the same amount of precipitation.

The relatively weak systems are doing little to pad rainfall amounts. The average amount of rainfall for November in Sacramento is 2.43 inches but so far, the city has only received 0.33 inches for the month.

The final of the trio of showery weather systems is expected late Friday night or early Saturday morning and may be wetter and more windy than the first two. Still, the total of the three storms is expected to be less than one-half inch of precipitation.
