The forecast for Labor Day weekend is for warm and dry conditions over Northern California.
High pressure is expected to bring hot temperatures today, perhaps 95 degrees in Sacramento. The high was 97 on Wednesday.
On Friday the temperatures start to cool even more. The National Weather Service calls it “modest cooling,” a good description because summertime conditions will still prevail in the valley.
Here’s the forecast through Labor Day courtesy of the NWS:
• Sacramento: Low to mid 90s.
• Stockton: Low to mid 90s.
• Redding: Mid 90s to 100 degrees.
• Fairfield: Mid 80s to lower 90s.
• Lake Tahoe: Mid 70s to lower 80s.
Hurricane Marie, kicking up surf along the coast, has weakened and been downgraded to a tropical storm. Marie still has the potential to send some high clouds toward Sacramento starting Friday.
