The Sacramento region is waking up to some rain today, after a record-setting two months without rain.

After 67 recorded days without rain, today's rain totals look to end up around 0.25 inches.

Most of the moisture is to the north, with very little hitting the south in the San Joaquin Valley - a storm is likely to be developing. The weather is also bringing about snow at high elevations above 7,000 feet. Chain controls are reportedly on Interstate 80 from Kingvale to Donner Lake Road, even though accumulations are going to be minor.

While the rest of the afternoon will most likely remain dry, there is a chance for an isolated thunderstorm in both the afternoon and evening north and east of Sacramento.

Heading into the rest of the week, Northern California will have sunshine, warmth and a slight breeze by Wednesday.
