The Sacramento area received a smattering of showers Monday from the tail end of a weather system that moved into the region Sunday.
Sacramento Executive Airport reported 0.02 inches of rain Monday and Sacramento International Airport got 0.01 inches, said Idamis Del Valle, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, while downtown Sacramento recorded a total of 0.02 for the two-day period.
Roseville had one of the highest rainfall totals in the Sacramento region, with 0.09 inches recorded Monday and a two-day total of nearly an inch, Del Valle said.
The high temperature for downtown Sacramento was 65 degrees Monday, and 64 degrees at Sacramento Executive and Sacramento International airports.
“It should be trending drier and warmer for the next couple of days,” Del Valle said.
A high of 73 is forecast for the Sacramento area on Tuesday and 76 degrees on Wednesday. Temperatures are expected to climb into the 80s Thursday. Saturday likely will be the warmest day this week with a projected high of 85 degrees.
The Sierra received a dusting of snow Monday, with an accumulation of only about an inch, Del Valle said. Tuesday is expected to be mostly sunny, with a high near 54 degrees and a low around 17 degrees Tuesday night.
