Sunny and hot temperatures are expected in the Sacramento region for the foreseeable future.

Today's high is expected to be in the upper 80s. However, a high pressure system is building, bringing with it torrid weather.

That shift in the weather will bring much hotter temperatures beginning Thursday when the maximum temp is expected to be in the high 90s in Sacramento. By Friday, the high in Sacramento is expected to be in the 100s and by early next week temperatures are predicted to be scorching - around 105 degrees.

The month of July begins Monday. The National Weather Service notes that typically mid-July through mid-August is the hottest time of the year in the Sacramento Valley. The average high temperature is around 95 degrees in Sacramento and about 100 degrees in Redding.
