Sacramento residents should enjoy the first couple days of the workweek, as it will be cooler than normal during the day, with highs in the 70s.

But, after Wednesday, be prepared for more unseasonably warm weather, as temperatures will climb back into the 90s by the weekend.

Today, a low pressure system, centered off the central Pacific Northwest coast, will start moving south into California, bringing clouds.

Highs will only reach 76 degrees in the capital, slightly cooler than the normal 82 degrees for the date. But the nighttime low of 55 degrees is only one degree off from the normal 54 degrees for this time of year.

“We’re carrying a small possibility of rain for the Valley, about 10 percent ... through Wednesday,” George Cline, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sacramento, said Sunday. “There is some chance of showers and thunderstorms in the mountains during this period.”

Tuesday’s temperature in Sacramento will be close to a repeat of Monday, with a high of 76 degrees expected during the day and a nighttime low of 56 degrees.

Wednesday, as the low pressure system moves out of the area, Sacramento’s high will be a seasonal 83 degrees during the day, with a partly cloudy sky. The evening will cool to 57 degrees.

Thursday will still be partly cloudy, but it will be warmer than normal, as a high pressure ridge starts to build up over Northern California. The high in Sacramento is expected to get to 88 degrees, with the low to be 59 degrees.

Friday will be sunny, with the daytime temperature shooting back up to 91 degrees. It won’t cool off much at night, as the low is expected to reach 63 degrees.

Saturday will be even toastier during the day, with a high of 93 expected.
