Enjoy the warm, sunny weather gracing Sacramento for the next few days because next weekend you could get wet.
The next few days should be dry and breezy, said Sacramento’s National Weather Service meteorologist Eric Kurth. Highs are expected to be in the upper 70s and could reach 80, he said.
“For us it just means that (Monday) will be slightly cooler,” Kurth said. “Tuesday, we’ll pop back up to 78.”
On Wednesday, the high could reach 80 degrees, about 10 degrees above the season normal. The balmy weather should hang around through Thursday, but that night a wet system is headed for the region that could bring between an inch to 2 inches of rain on Friday, Saturday and possibly next Sunday, Kurth said. Though it’s spring, the storm looks more like a January or February system, he said, with Friday being the wettest day.
“The exact details aren’t clear, but it looks like there’s the potential for quite a bit of snow” in the mountains, Kurth said. He suggested that anyone planning to travel to the Tahoe area or over the Sierra next weekend should keep an eye on the forecast.
It could be a “really difficult travel period,” Kurth said.
