What to do if your car hydroplanes
A storm system early this week will bring precipitation across interior Northern California, marked by a moderate bout of rain and a sharp drop in temperatures for Sacramento on Monday.
Sacramento will see rain Monday afternoon, with a half-inch possible by the end of the day, according to National Weather Service forecasts.
The high temperature in Sacramento will dip to 62 Monday after the region hit the mid-70s Sunday, forecasts show.
Rain and snow showers may linger elsewhere in Northern California on Tuesday, but Sacramento is expected to be dry the rest of the week and heat back up, possibly reaching temperatures as high as 84 by Thursday or Friday.
About 6 to 10 inches of snow will fall throughout most of the Sierra, with up to 1 foot possible near Donner Pass and higher amounts possible at peaks, NWS says. About 6 to 10 inches will fall above 5,500 feet Monday. Snow levels will drop to 4,500 feet later Monday evening.
Chain controls and reduced visibility are possible as NWS has a winter weather advisory in place 11 a.m. Monday through 11 a.m. Tuesday.
