Today marks two weeks since the last drop of rain fell in Sacramento.

The dry spell comes after a wet December. Rainfall now stands at 9.84 inches for the season, which is 121 percent of normal for the date.

The weather is more notable this January for the unseasonably warm afternoon temperatures. A high of 62 degrees was recorded in Sacramento on Tuesday.

Look for another warm afternoon today as high pressure off the west coast remains in place. The National Weather Service expects that Northern California temperatures will range from six to 19 degrees above normal on Wednesday.
