Dry and mild conditions are expected going into the weekend.
Meanwhile, strong winds are expected in the Lake Tahoe area and western Nevada due to a fast-moving storm.
The National Weather Service says a wind advisory will remain in effect until 4 o'clock this afternoon in western Nevada. Wind gusts of up to 45 miles an hour are expected in the Reno-Carson City area.
Some scattered showers are in the forecast for the Sacramento Valley and throughout Northern California Thursday. While not much precipitation is expected, a winter weather advisory has been issued for elevations above 6,500 feet south of Highway 50.
Some rain and snow is forecast for the Sierra and Sacramento area this weekend. The National Weather Service says a quick moving storm will come through Friday and last into Saturday.
Just a little bit of rain and snow is all we got from the recent weather system through the Central Valley and Northern California.
As the California drought wears on, it might seem like more creative solutions are in order. But it might not yet be time for drastic measures.
The higher temperatures will be sticking around for another day-- even approaching record territory in Sacramento Monday.
