Friday brought the rain, which gave way to Saturday morning fog, which gave way to some sunshine.

Now, get ready for some heat.

The area’s recent flurry of change-a-day weather saw 0.66 inches of rain fall in Sacramento on Friday, a record for April 25. Other area communities received nearly an inch of rain. In the Sierra Nevada foothills, sometimes heavy showers pushed Friday rain totals to around 1.5 inches in some jurisdictions.

Snow levels on Friday dropped as low as 5,000 feet.

Friday’s moisture helped produce areas of dense fog in Sacramento and throughout the Central Valley on Saturday morning. Light winds helped clear the way for Saturday afternoon sunshine and highs in the mid-60s.

By Wednesday, it could be 90 degrees.

“With high pressure moving in, we’re looking for some warming temperatures,” said George Cline, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Sacramento.

There’s a fair chance of Sunday morning showers, but Cline said the likely accumulation in Sacramento will amount to less than one-tenth of an inch.

Here’s the seven-day forecast:

Tonight: A 30 percent chance of rain after 11 p.m. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 50. West-southwest winds 6 to 14 mph; gusts could top 20 mph in some areas.
