Spectacular summer weather will remain in the Sacramento region for another day of cooler-than-normal temperatures, followed by moderately increasing heat.

The National Weather Service predicts highs to top out today between 87 and 90 degrees, thanks to light winds. With clear skies, overnight lows will dip into the upper 50s.

“We’re seeing some Delta Breeze, not too strong but just enough to keep things cool,” said forecaster Brooke Bingaman. “In the Sacramento metro area, we’re seeing temperatures a degree or two below normal, up to five degrees below normal.”

Monday will look a lot like Sunday, she added. “We’ll still enjoy this cooler weather Monday,” Bingaman said. “In fact, it may even be a little cooler in a few spots with temperatures only in the high 80s.”

But then, highs will return to the 90s, she predicted. “From Tuesday through Thursday, a high-pressure ridge will start nudging into Northern California. That will bring us back up into the low to mid-90s.”

The good news? That ridge isn’t expected to stick around, meaning high temperatures will return to the 80s for a cool Labor Day weekend.
