The rain just won't go away.

Rain is forecasted to start the week and there's a chance of thunderstorms tomorrow. But by the end of the week, temperatures should be about 5 to 10 degrees above average.

Before we get too ahead of ourselves, let’s recap how much rain we got on Easter Sunday.

Believe it or not, we set a record for precipitation in Sacramento.

Here is where we stand so far for the water year:

  • Sacramento Executive Airport: 32.72” normal value is 16.84”
  • Stockton: 21.26” normal value 12.77”
  • Modesto: 16.41” normal value 11.69”
  • South Lake Tahoe: 44.94”
  • San Francisco: 30.59” normal value 19.39”
  • Redding: 45.50” normal value 30.05”

Here’s a snapshot of when to expect from the rain this afternoon.

Heavy rain will move in overnight into early Tuesday morning.

During Tuesday morning's rush hour, expect isolated showers across the region and steady rain across the foothills. So, expect the roads to be damp.


By the end of the week, daytime highs will be warm. Valley temperatures will reach the upper 70s to lower 80s – that’s about 5 to 10 degrees above average!
