Wet Weekend Ahead

Forecasters say a series of strong and wet storms are taking aim at Northern California beginning today and lasting through the weekend.

Meteorologist David Rowe with the National Weather Service in Sacramento says it'll put Sacramento's rainfall totals well-above-normal. 

"Looks like we're going to kind of stay in this cool and unsettled pattern. We'll probably get about a half-inch or so today and then maybe up to another half-inch through the weekend."

Rowe says the ground is pretty saturated from wet weather all week long…and that could mean we'll see some toppled trees.

"It will get kind of breezy later this morning through early afternoon. So there could be some minor wind damage, weakened trees. Sometimes it seems like branches are always falling into power lines somewhere."

Meanwhile, crews with the City of Sacramento's Transportation Department have closed the floodgates on Del Paso Boulevard…between Railroad Drive and Northgate Boulevard…because of high water levels in the Sacramento River. City officials say they don't know how long the gates will be closed.
