Breezes bringing 80-degree temps to Sacramento

Published: Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2014 - 6:43 am

A slight chance of thunderstorms is predicted for the Sierra Nevada late Wednesday, but otherwise dry and cool weather is forecast for Northern California.

Temperatures in the 80s in Sacramento are expected to continue for the next few days, according to the National Weather Service. The below normal readings are partially due to the Delta breeze that was blowing Wednesday morning, but was expected to wane later in the day and more so in the next few days.

With the lessening of the Delta breeze, more warming is likely across the interior of Northern California, according to the NWS. The weather service is projecting these afternoon highs for Wednesday and Thursday:

• Redding: 91, 93 degrees

• Chico: 86, 90

• Marysville: 87, 90

• Sacramento: 84, 88

• Fairfield: 79, 85

• Lakeport: 89, 91

• Blue Canyon: 73, 74

• Stockton: 87, 91

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

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 84. South southwest wind 7 to 9 mph.
