Published: Monday, Jun. 30, 2014 - 7:20 pm

Sacramento closed out June with a high of 106 degrees, a degree shy of the 107 degrees recorded on June 9.

The 106 degrees was reported at both Sacramento Executive Airport and downtown Sacramento, said George Cline, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Redding saw a high of 110 degrees, Marysville at 108, and Stockton and Lincoln at 104.

Temperatures in the Sacramento region are expected to top out below the century mark Tuesday, with a forecast high of 98 degrees. Cline said highs are likely to remain in the mid 90s the rest of the week, with overnight lows in the 60s.

In the Lake Tahoe area, highs in the mid-80s to low 90s are forecast for Tuesday, along with a chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms. Citing the potential for lightning-sparked wildfires, the National Weather Service has issued a red flag warning for the Lake Tahoe area, as well as eastern Alpine County. The warning will be in effect from 1 to 9 p.m. Tuesday.
