No rain is expected Tuesday -- and any precipitation from a weather front on Wednesday is expected to be light, according to the National Weather Service.

A weakening weather system is expected to bring showers to Northern California after midnight and through Wednesday. Until then, look for Sacramento to have a cloudy Tueday with a mild 75 degrees for the high temperature.
