Sunday hot, Monday predicted hotter as Sacramento sizzles

A high of 105 degrees is forecast for Sacramento on Monday as the region bakes under potentially record-breaking heat.

If, as predicted, the mercury reaches 105 degrees, that would break a record of 102 set downtown on June 9, 1986. Sunday’s heat peaked at 104, which fell 4 degrees short of the all-time high for June 8.

The strong high pressure system influencing the weather is expected to bring triple digit temperatures throughout the valley. Even communities at higher elevations, such as Placerville, where it is forecast to reach 101 on Monday, will see century-mark readings.

The National Weather Service is calling for slightly cooler temperatures on Tuesday, followed by more significant cooling at the middle of the week. Look for high temperatures in the upper 80s by Thursday.

The detailed, 7-day forecast from the NWS for the Sacramento region:

Monday: Sunny and hot, with a high near 105. West northwest wind 3 to 6 mph.

Tonight: Clear, with a low around 66. South wind 5 to 8 mph.

Tuesday: Sunny and hot, with a high near 99. Light and variable wind becoming south 5 to 8 mph in the afternoon.

Tuesday night: Clear, with a low around 60. South southwest wind 7 to 9 mph.

Friday night: Clear, with a low around 58.
