Diane Westphal of Davis and her dog Dusty found Friday's heat to be the perfect time to kayak on the Sacramento River. Westphal and her sister-in-law Milly Westphal of Shingle Springs started their hourlong adventure at Miller Park and paddled upriver to Old Sacramento. Diane Westphal said Dusty goes on all her kayaking trips.

Temperatures expected to reach triple digits

High pressure is expected to build along the coast from Sunday into next week, bringing hot temperatures at least through Tuesday.

By the end of the weekend, forecasters predict valley communities will have triple-digit heat, the foothills will experience daytime highs in the 90s and the mountains will have highs in the 80s.

Although the days will be hot, a look at the weather history tables reveals that records are not likely to be broken, according to forecasters. Daytime highs are expected to be several degrees short of local records, according to the NWS.

The last day with a reading of 100 degrees or more in Sacramento was Aug. 19, when the mercury hit 104.
