Temperatures are heading upward in Sacramento as the high today edges into the 90s – and by Thursday the weather could be flirting with 100 degrees.
That’s a far cry from the AccuWeather forecast for other parts of the country where snow is forecast to make an appearance across Montana and into North Dakota on Tuesday night. Frost is expected to be a major concern for tomatoes, squash, cucumbers and watermelon.
AccuWeather forecasters say that frost may form several nights in a row across the Northern Plains with frost possible over the upper Midwest during the second half of the week.
But there’s no need to cover frost-sensitive plants around Sacramento. Above-normal temperatures continue with a high of 97 predicted for Thursday.
A high-pressure ridge is building over the area and could remain over the region through the end of the week. The Central Valley is expected to have high temperatures from the mid-90s to around 100 from Wednesday through Friday, according to the National Weather Service.
