While the next six days appear to be dry, National Weather Service forecasters say that some welcome rain is creeping into the forecast for next week.

Confidence is mounting at the Arden Arcade offices of the NWS among meteorologists that precipitation could work its way through Northern California about Wednesday. The exact timing and how much rain is still, as forecasters say, up in the air.

The advance forecast for Sacramento next Wednesday reads “A chance of rain. Partly sunny, with a high near 77.” So far, that’s not a prediction that would inspire ark-building.

Until then, the NWS expects pleasant fall weather in Sacramento. The detailed, seven-day forecast for the Sacramento region:

Thursday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 83. Calm wind becoming northwest 5 to 7 mph in the afternoon.

Thursday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 54. Northwest wind 5 to 8 mph becoming calm in the evening.

Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 81. Light and variable wind.

Friday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 56. Light south-southeast wind.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 82. Calm wind becoming south around 5 mph in the afternoon.

Saturday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 57.

Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 78.
