Little rain in store for this weekend
After a good dousing Tuesday, Lodi should escape major rain for the rest of this week and this weekend.
Aside from a chance of light rain on Friday, the weekend should be partly cloudy with mild temperatures, said Andy Mussolini, a meteorologist with AccuWeather.com, a private forecasting service.
He expects a high of 62 degrees for Saturday and 63 on Sunday, with partly cloudy skies.
This will occur because storms will be pushed to the Pacific Northwest, sparing California from rain.
"We're not looking at any major rain events for you in the near future," Mussolini said.
The Lodi Fire Department recorded 0.56 inches of rain Tuesday as a storm system brought drizzles throughout the day.
It has rained 6.25 inches in Lodi so far this year and 12.04 inches since the start of the rainy season. That marks a sharp increase from last winter, when only 7.70 inches had fallen at this point in the rainy season.
