Sacramento weather: Light rain possible Sunday, then warming up

Sacramento could see scattered rain showers Sunday as a lingering storm pushes out of the region. But as the week progresses, it will feel more like summer again.

The National Weather Service reported a trace of rain overnight at Sacramento’s international and executive airports. Elsewhere in the region, South Lake Tahoe saw nearly a half-inch of rain by 5 a.m. Sunday and Blue Canyon had just over a tenth of an inch.

There’s a 20 percent chance of showers in Sacramento and the surrounding valley region on Sunday, with a high temperature around 77 degrees expected. The low temperature overnight is forecast to be 59 degrees in Sacramento, with partly cloudy conditions overnight.

The week will warm up and dry out starting Monday, with the work week getting warmer each day. By Saturday, temperatures could reach 10 degrees above normal for the season, but no record-breaking heat is expected.
