Hot temperatures, low humidity and occasionally breezy conditions are forecast for the weekend in Sacramento.

The hottest day is expected to be Sunday when the mercury could hit 104 degrees in Sacramento. That won’t be a record because on June 8, 2013, a 108 degree day emerged as the all-time high temperature for the date.

On Thursday, the high was 96 degrees in Sacramento. The mid-90s are predicted for the Sacramento region again on Friday.

Morning temperatures were cooler thanks to a Delta breeze, but those mild conditions won’t last through the day.

The National Weather Service is predicting that winds could gust as high as 20 mph in Sacramento on Saturday.

The detailed, seven-day forecast from the NWS for the Sacramento region:

Friday: Sunny, with a high near 95. Southwest wind 6 to 8 mph.
