Sacramento gets break Saturday before rain returns

The skies in Sacramento will remain cloudy today in anticipation of another storm slated to hit the area within the next 24 hours.

The National Weather Service predicts the early morning showers in the region will taper off by noon. A high temperature of 64 degrees is expected in downtown Sacramento.

The next storm on Sunday will bring light precipitation, according to weather service forecaster Courtney Obergfell.

But forecasters are carefully eying another system arriving late Wednesday, which Obergfell described as “pretty strong.”

“We could see another round of heavy rainfall,” she said, “up to three inches for the Sacramento Valley.”
