The cool, dry weather that greeted the Sacramento region early Saturday should stretch through the afternoon, but more rain is expected by evening.
“We have kind of two more waves coming through,” said Travis Wilson, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service. “The first one is going to be tonight, and the second one is expected to come tomorrow.”
Friday’s mild storm dropped more than half an inch of rain on Sacramento. The National Weather Service predicts an additional half inch of rain will fall Saturday night, beginning around 5 p.m.
Area residents can expect another lull early Sunday before the next storm system hits. A half inch of rain is also predicted for later Sunday, Wilson said.
Though no wind advisories are in place for the Sacramento area, central and northern Sacramento Valley should see much stronger storms, with gusts reaching 40 to 50 mph, Wilson said.
The rain will taper off Monday, and a warming trend should bring temperatures back into the low 80s by Friday.
