A streak of record high temperatures shows no signs of slowing Saturday and Sunday. The National Weather Service forecasts the temperature to reach 73 degrees today, breaking a record high of 71 degrees that was set in 1899.

Sunday’s high is expected to reach 71 degrees, which would break a record of 70 degrees that was also set in 1899.

However, the picnic-friendly temperatures may be coming to an end next week. The NWS predicts a Pacific weather system will arrive in Northern California and bring a slight chance of rain Thursday. A chance of showers and a high in the low 60s is forecast for Friday.

The seven-day forecast from the NWS:

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 73. Light northwest winds.

Saturday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 40.

Sunday: Sunny, with a high near 72. Light and variable wind.

Sunday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 38. Calm wind.

Monday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 69. Calm wind.

Monday night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 43.

Tuesday: Partly sunny, with a high near 70.

Tuesday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 45.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 73.

Wednesday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 45.

Thursday: Slight chance of rain. Partly sunny, with a high near 71.

Thursday night: Slight chance of rain. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 43.

Friday: Slight chance of showers. Partly sunny, with a high near 63.
