This NOAA satellite image taken Tuesday, Aug. 27, shows showers and thunderstorms over Arizona and Utah. Farther north, showers stretch into the Northern Rockies. Rain showers are seen over the Pacific Northwest. In the Sacramento area, low pressure is moving out, pushed by high pressure that will allow temperatures to rise.

A low-pressure system is expected to weaken and move northeast over the next few days, allowing temperatures to warm.

Today, however, the high in Sacramento is expected to be 91 degrees, which is normal for late August. High temperatures start to warm on Wednesday, peaking on Friday at about 95 degrees.

Then, the weekend cools. Instead of a three-day Labor Day scorcher, the National Weather Service predicts the holiday will be mild with high temperatures in the 80s.

The detailed, seven-day forecast from the NWS for the Sacramento region:

Today: Sunny, with a high near 91. Calm wind becoming west-northwest around 5 mph in the afternoon.

Tonight: Mostly clear, with a low around 63. West-southwest wind around 8 mph becoming south after midnight.

Wednesday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 63. South wind 7 to 10 mph.
