    A young boy keeps to the shade as he wades Thursday in the shallow water of the American River under the Interstate 5 bridge at Discovery Park in Sacramento. Forecasters are warning that today's high could reach 102 degrees and temperatures on Saturday may top out at a record-setting 105 degrees before Delta breezes dial the heat back into the upper 80s on Sunday.

If the temperature reaches the forecasted high of 104 degrees today, it will be the first 100-degree day of the year and a record maximum temp for June 7 in Sacramento.

The National Weather Service's weather summary noted that uncertainty cropped up Wednesday surrounding the position of a low pressure system. The system had the potential to keep temperatures lower today.

However, that low pressure system is expected to hold off until later Sunday, increasing the likelihood of the hottest weather so far this year. Even hotter temperatures are expected on Saturday when more records could be broken.

The records and the forecast for Sacramento from the NWS:

• Today: record 102, set in 1883. Forecast: 104.

• Saturday: record 103, set in 1973. Forecast: 107.
