Temperatures in the Sacramento region are expected to remain in the triple-digits for the next few days.

Weather service forecaster Drew Peterson said the high temperature Saturday will top out at 103 degrees, before retreating to 102 degrees Sunday.

“We’re going to see continued high temperatures,” he said.

The Sand fire, burning in El Dorado and Amador counties, will likely bring smoke into greater Sacramento Sunday morning.

“All that smoke is going to fall down into our area overnight today,” Peterson said.
