Temps on the rise,
but nights stay cool
A high-pressure system began building over the Sacramento Valley region this weekend, promising warm daytime temperatures today of between 77 and 83 degrees and cooler overnight temperatures, the National Weather Service reported.
Weather forecasters predict northwest winds of up to 15 mph through Monday, gusting to 25 mph tonight in the region.
Highs through the week will range in the upper 70s to mid-80s. Low tonight will be in the upper 40s and 50s, warming only slightly overnight through the coming week.
The warm and sunny streak is bittersweet news for the region, which is still stuck in a drought. The April 1 rain brought precipitation to 53 percent of normal, said weather service forecaster Drew Peterson.
