One last crack at 100-degree weather today, before temperatures turn cooler.
That's the best scientific estimation of the National Weather Service. Forecasters say that not much has changed weather-wise in Sacramento between today and Monday when the mercury hit 100 degrees for a short time in downtown Sacramento.
There is still a high pressure system holding Northern California in its grip. However, forecasters say that the abnormally hot fall temperatures are about to leave.
Expect low 90s on Wednesday and and low 80s on on Thursday.
The detailed, 7-day forecast from the NWS:
Today: Sunny and hot, with a high near 100. Calm wind becoming south around 5 mph in the afternoon.
Tonight: Mostly clear, with a low around 60. South wind 3 to 6 mph.
Wednesday: Sunny, with a high near 93. Calm wind becoming south 5 to 7 mph in the afternoon.
Wednesday night: Clear, with a low around 58. South wind 5 to 8 mph.
Thursday: Sunny, with a high near 83. South southwest wind 6 to 9 mph.
Thursday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 55.
Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 82.
Friday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 54.
Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 82.
Saturday night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 54.
Sunday: Partly sunny, with a high near 81.
Sunday night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 53.
Columbus Day: Partly sunny, with a high near 80.

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com
Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)
Here are some rules of the road:
Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "Report Abuse" link to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.
Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.
Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.
Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.
Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
Don't flag other users' comments just because you don't agree with their point of view. Please only flag comments that violate these guidelines.
You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "Report Abuse" link to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at email@example.com. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.
If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them.
