A warming trend begins today that is expected to lead to a string of 70 degree readings. High pressure building over the Sacramento region will bring above normal temperatures and fair skies. The high today will still be in the low 60s, but on Saturday a sharp climb begins with the high expected to reach 68 degrees.
Then, on Sunday, look for a stretch of days where the temperature will reach at least 70 degrees.
