The National Weather Service in Sacramento says dry weather should continue through the beginning of the week, with river and stream levels gradually beginning to recede. The reprieve is expected to be short-lived, though.

A series of three storms is forecast to hit northern California starting Wednesday and continuing through the weekend. While the new wave of storms is expected to be less wet than last week’s systems, the precipitation will nonetheless lead to renewed flooding concerns and hazardous travel over mountain passes.

In the meantime, evacuation advisories have been lifted in Rio Linda and Wilton areas as of Saturday afternoon. However Sacramento County continued to advise that residents of the Glanville area bounded by Lambert, Franklin, Lost Slough and Snodgrass Slough should stay away due to continued risk of levee failure. Point Pleasant residents were also encouraged to stay away, as many roads are still closed.
