Rain Mostly Stays Away; Sunny Weekend Awaits

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A weak storm system is moving south out of the area Friday, leaving less rainfall than expected but a fresh coating of snow in the Sierra.

Rain totals from Thursday ranged from a trace to a few-hundredths of an inch across the valley. In the foothills, Grass Valley picked up some ice pellets and small hail, and Sierra ski resorts are reporting snow totals between 2-6 inches.

Northern California will see partly sunny skies heading into Friday afternoon with cool highs in the mid-50s. A few light snow showers are possible in the Sierra Friday afternoon. Snow totals will be less than in inch.

The rest of the weekend is looking sunny, with nice afternoon high temperatures hovering around 60 degrees both Saturday and Sunday.

It will be quite cold overnight, though, with low temperatures dipping down to frosty 32 degrees each morning.

Foggy mornings and sunny afternoons return to the forecast all next week, with temperatures climbing into the mid-60s.

Despite a mostly dry January and start to February, Sacramento is still 107 percent of normal for the season, which started July 1. It has received 13.13 inches of rain since then.
