The Sacramento area will be hot this weekend. Today's high temperature will hover around 96 degrees, while Sunday should see 100 degree heat. But on Monday, the Sacramento region will begin cooling down.

"We have a low pressure system off the coast moving in. The marine air will thicken and increase the Delta breeze," said Holly Osborne, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Sacramento.

The region will also be under the threat of scattered thunderstorms and showers from Monday through Wednesday, Osborne said.
