Sunny skies after fog clears out in Sacramento

After the morning fog clears out, Sacramento will see sunny skies on Thursday.

A combination of clear skies, along with moisture from previous storms is creating the fog, which will last until Friday, said Mike Smith, a forecaster with the National Weather Service.

“We’re getting cooler temperatures,” said Smith, noting that it helps fog creation.

Forecasters are also watching overnight temperatures, which have dipped into the upper 30s this week. The weather will remain quiet until late Saturday, when a storm is expected to bring moderate rain to Sacramento and snow to the Sierra.

Here’s the seven-day forecast:

Thursday: Patchy fog before 11 a.m. Otherwise, sunny, with a high near 62. Calm wind becoming north-northwest 5 to 9 mph in the afternoon.
