Dry weather with temperatures around normal for this time of year is in the Sacramento area forecast this week.

The National Weather Service predicts some cooling - with highs in the low 90s and lows on the cusp of 60 degrees - as a low pressure trough moves through the area with more onshore flow. But these temperatures will still be close to normal for mid-August.

Monday's high was 93 and the low was 59 - temperatures that were normal and just two degrees below normal, respectively, for this time of year.

Temperatures are expected to spike after the weekend. Here's the 7-day forecast:

Today: Sunny, with a high near 94. Light and variable wind becoming west southwest 5 to 7 mph in the afternoon.

Tonight: Clear, with a low around 59. Southwest wind 7 to 9 mph becoming south southeast after midnight.
