Sacramento is on the verge of a hot spell with a predicted high of 98 degrees on Sunday and then the area heads into triple-digit temperatures on Monday and Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
The predicted high is 105 degrees on Monday and 102 degrees on Tuesday, said Karl Swanberg, a forecaster for the National Weather Service in Sacramento.
“Our normal highs this time of year are probably low 90s,” Swanberg said. “But a hot spell isn’t unusual for Sacramento summers.”
The record high for June 30 (Monday) is 112, set in 1934, and 109 on July 1, set in 1950, he said.
Sacramento will cool down later in the week.
“So we’re looking at a short but hot, hot spell,” he said.
