A very weak weather system off the coast of Baja California is expected to move northward over the next 24 hours, perhaps spreading precipitation into the Sacramento region.
Today is expected to be sunny with a high of 60 degrees in Sacramento, much like the type of weather that has frustrated Northern Californians who want rain and snow to alleviate the multi-year drought.
So far this January a measly 0.01 of an inch of rain has been registered in Sacramento. January is usually the wettest month of the year.
It would be better if a strong weather system from the west was barreling toward the north state, poised to deliver plenty of snow for the Sierra. That is not the case.

The little system headed to the north state arrives from our neighbors to the south. It may not amount to much, if any.
