Lodi is in for a rainy week as a storm pattern makes its way through California during the next 10 days.
"There's going to be a lot of days where there is a chance of precipitation, but I don't think it's going to rain all day every day," said meteorologist John Dlugoenski, of AccuWeather.com, a private forecasting service.
The rain will start today with a high of only 43 degrees, Dlugoenski said.
Sacramento will possibly see snow mixed in with the rain today, but there will probably be little accumulation because it is above freezing, he said. Roseville and other cities north of Sacramento are likely to receive snowfall.
While it will be cold, Lodi and Stockton will probably not receive any of the snow flurries.
Tuesday and Wednesday are forecasted to be dry and partially cloudy with temperatures in the mid-40s.
Lodi will see a soaking rain Thursday with milder temps in mid-50s.
The wet weather could continue through the weekend with showers possible on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The temperatures will remain in the mid-50s, Dlugoenski said.
Snow historyUnfortunately, for those who enjoy building snowmen, sledding down hills or chucking snowballs, Lodi will likely not be receiving any white powder despite the cold temperatures today.
It will rain on and off today, and the high will only be 43 degrees, said meteorologist John Dlugoenski with AccuWeather.com, a private forecasting service.
Lodi rarely receives snow, but when it does, residents remember it fondly.
In 2008, Bob Smerbeck, who was a senior meteorologist at AccuWeather.com, detailed the last five times in snowed in Lodi:
— On Dec. 23, 2004, there was a trace of snow.
— Records showed another trace of snow on Feb. 6, 2002.
— On Jan. 28, 2002, it snowed a tenth of an inch.
— On Jan. 19, 2002, meteorologists picked up another trace.
— And back on Dec. 2, 2000, there was yet another trace at the airport.
Other note worthy snow events include:
— Photos provided by local residents show proof of snow covered lawns in December 1968.
— The Desert Research Institute, which keeps weather data from across the country, recorded 1.5 inches of snow on Jan. 12, 1930.
- The institute also recorded half an inch of snow on Jan. 4, 1950, and a trace amount in 1972.
