No records are expected to be set, but 101-degree readings are forecast for both Friday and Saturday in Sacramento.

The temperature in Sacramento is ramping up as a ridge of high pressure builds over the west and the Delta breeze disappears. In place of the cooling breeze from the bay, dry and hot winds from the north are expected for the next several days.

Sunday is also predicted to be hot, about 98 degrees in Sacramento. Next week is forecast to remain toasty with readings in the mid-to-high 90s.
