Expect cooler weather as you walk outside today.

The overnight low in Sacramento was 60 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures will heat up in the afternoon to 91 degrees today.

"We're forecasting near normal temperatures," said Stefanie Henry, a weather service forecaster in Sacramento.

For State Fair goers, the mild weather may come as a relief. Henry recommends visiting in the morning or in the evening because "the peak temperature is between 2 and 6 p.m."

Starting Monday, the Delta breeze is expected to cool the region even more, pushing high temperatures into the 80s.

Here's the seven-day forecast:

Today: Sunny, with a high near 91. Southwest wind around 8 mph.
