The daytime high today is expected to be about 10 degrees warmer than it was on Sunday in Sacramento as a brief warm-up occurs before the arrival of a weak weather system.
The National Weather Service is calling for a high of about 84 degrees today in the Sacramento region. That’s warmer than the city experienced over the weekend when Sacramento received about four-tenths of an inch of rain and temperatures in the 70s.
Forecasters say that a low pressure trough is expected to move across interior Northern California on Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing a chance of mountain showers. As the trough shifts eastward, northerly winds left in its wake will increase.
It is expected that gusty conditions will start on Wednesday. Gusts could reach 18 mph in Sacramento on Wednesday, according the NWS.
