Be prepared for a heavy dose of rain — and even a storm or two — through the weekend.

The Lodi-Galt area will start off with early fog this morning before the first rain comes in later today — a half-inch or so, according to Mike Pigott, senior meteorologist for AccuWeather.com, a private forecasting service.

We can also expect wind gusts of 45 mph today, so watch your tree branches.

After a smaller amount of rain on Thursday, get those raincoats and boots out on Friday — the local area is expected to receive 2 to 4 inches of rain through Sunday.

And whatever you do, don't go north of Sacramento unless you have gills. The Yuba City-Marysville area can expect 4 to 8 inches of rain the rest of the week, but it is Butte, Shasta and Plumas counties that will really be hit — 12 to 18 inches worth, Pigott said.

The California Emergency Management Agency warned residents north of Sacramento to watch out for the storm. The state agency also advised residents in counties north of Sacramento to have at least a three-day supply of food and water for each family member, battery-operated radios and flashlights, extra batteries, a manual can opener, and safe routes from their home or business to higher ground.

Although it will be wet and windy the remainder of the week, it will remain warm for this time of year, Pigott said. Highs will be about 58 degrees today, 64 on Thursday and 60 Friday through Sunday.

Altitude of snowfall will remain high, Pigott said — at about the 6,500-foot mark today, 8,000 feet on Thursday and 7,000 feet Friday through Sunday.

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?
