Mother Nature apparently wants to remind us that summer doesn’t end for another nine days.
Sacramento’s early-September heat spell will continue Sunday, but by Monday temperatures should be back down to seasonal normals. The National Weather Service forecasts a local high of 99 degrees this afternoon, making this potentially the first day since midweek that the high won’t top 100. Saturday’s high downtown was 104 degrees, tying the record for that date.
