A dense fog advisory is in effect until 11 a.m. in the Sacramento area. After that, look for partly sunny skies for the remainder of the day.

Sacramento’s weather has been in something of a rut, lately. No rain has fallen since Christmas Eve day.

That’s a long time, especially for a region hoping to recover from years-long drought. So far, 9.84 inches of rain has fallen this season in Sacramento.

Very little change is expected in Northern California weather through mid-week, according to the National Weather Service. High pressure is forecast to build Tuesday into Wednesday, a factor that will continue the dry and mild weather across the Sacramento region.

The detailed, 7-day forecast from the NWS for the Sacramento area:

Monday: Widespread haze after 10am. Areas of dense fog before 10am. Otherwise, partly sunny, with a high near 62. Calm wind becoming northwest around 6 mph in the afternoon.

Tonight: Widespread haze before 10pm. Mostly clear, with a low around 42. North northwest wind 3 to 5 mph.

Tuesday: Sunny, with a high near 62. Calm wind becoming north northwest around 5 mph in the afternoon.
