(KTXL) — The California Department of Water Resources said the Sacramento Weir would not be opened on Monday.  The gates of the weir are opened when water levels at the I Street Bridge reach 29.87 feet, but so far, the levels have been declining. The last observed level of the Sacramento River at the bridge was 26.7 feet.  Over the weekend, more wet weather led to the river level getting close to the Tower Bridge and appearing to be a cause for concern. But the city of West Sacramento said that the river had not reached the flood stage.
