SACRAMENTO, Calif — Stormy skies have left the region... for now.
With this advisory, drivers should allow for more travel time since visibility on the roads will be limited and cause minor travel delays. The National Weather Service expects to terminate this advisory around 10 a.m. Tuesday.
The greater Sacramento region should have a pretty dry Tuesday with some showers and expect light rains on Wednesday. Rain will start to pick up as a storm approaches the region for the weekend. Over the weekend, widespread moderate to heavy rains and snow are expected to hit the Valley and Sierra. This storm should be a three-day event with rain and snow moving in on Friday afternoon and leaving by Sunday. Mountain travel will have snow and possibly chain controls.
Stronger wind will come with the storm affecting trees, and visibility as well.
