Cooling breezes take the sizzle out of Sacramento

After three days of 100-plus weather, the Delta breeze came rushing in overnight to lower temperatures in the Sacramento region.

High temperatures in the mid-80s are expected to reign through Friday as the cooling trend provides welcome relief to Sacramento Valley residents. Temperatures throughout the valley were cooler early Wednesday morning, while the foothills and the mountains are about the same as on Tuesday.

The high pressure ridge is shifting farther east and the marine layer along the Pacific coast is gradually deepening, according to the National Weather Service. Gusty westerly winds are likely through the Carquinez Strait and into the valley over the next 24 hours.

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

Wednesday: Sunny, with a high near 86. South southwest wind 9 to 11 mph.

Tonight: Clear, with a low around 56. South wind 10 to 13 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.

Thursday: Sunny, with a high near 84. South southwest wind around 10 mph.

Thursday night: Clear, with a low around 55. South wind 10 to 13 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.
