The Sacramento region is set for a dramatic cooling this weekend as a cold front pushes through Saturday night, the National Weather Service reports.

Saturday’s high temperature will hover at 76 degrees. Overnight lows will drop into the mid-40s. For Sunday, the high temperature should reach 69 degrees.

“Winds will start picking up tomorrow,” said weather service forecaster Stefanie Henry, adding that gusts will reach 35 mph in Sacramento.

The latest system is unlikely to bring any precipitation to the area, but forecasters already have their eyes on the next storm.

“A stronger system might come in Thursday, bringing a slight chance of rain showers on Thursday and Friday,” Henry said, “but that’s still pretty much up in the air.”

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 76. Light and variable wind.
