While much of the country is wearing parkas, Sacramento is experiencing shirt-sleeve afternoon warmth.

Sacramento residents in t-shirts were walking dogs and jogging through parks on Thursday as the city experienced a high of 66 degrees. That broke a high for the day of 65, which was set Jan. 2, 1940.

On Wednesday, the temperature hit 65 degrees, matching the record maximum set Jan. 1, 1887.

Friday’s high could also match the all-time maximum of 64, which was set Jan. 3, 2012. The National Weather Service predicts the high Friday will be a tad under the record: 63 degrees.

NWS forecasters say that a high pressure ridge along the west coast will continue to bring warm and dry weather through the weekend. Showers are possible Tuesday and Wednesday.

Today: Mostly sunny, with a high near 63. Calm wind becoming north northwest around 5 mph in the afternoon.
