Don’t bother dusting off those umbrellas, because mid-week storms should be moving out of the area today.

Rain began falling Tuesday evening and is expected to continue into the wee hours of this morning, with the brunt of the storm falling Wednesday afternoon, according to West Coast forecaster Ken Clark of AccuWeather.com, a private forecasting service.

The storm produced just more than an inch of rain, according to Weather Underground.

A few lingering clouds should move out of the area by this afternoon, when high temperatures should reach the low 60s, Clark said.

There are no concerns about rain heading into the weekend.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday should be mostly sunny, with highs in the low to mid-60s and low temperatures in the mid-30s.

This mid-week storm brought rain to an area starved for it.

Between Jan. 1 and Nov. 18, Lodi Lake received 4.45 inches of rain, roughly 40 percent of the area’s normal precipitation level. This recent rain, though, raised the year’s total to 5.57 inches, which is roughly 50 percent of the normal precipitation level, according to Weather Underground.

According to forecaster Andy Mussoline of AccuWeather.com, this year has been “abnormally dry” but hasn’t approached record-setting territory.

Unfortunately for skiers and snowboarders, the heart of the storm passed south of many Sierra resorts.

Dodge Ridge reported 2 to 3 inches of new snow. Squaw Valley expects 3 inches of snow through Thursday. Mt. Rose reported 1 to 2 inches of snow. Heavenly, which is scheduled to open Friday, could see up to 4 inches of snow.

According to Clark, the next chance of rain could be Wednesday night or Thursday of next week.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
