Another dry day is predicted for Tuesday in Sacramento -- but later in the week temperatures are predicted to drop and there could be a few droplets here and there.
It’s a week of change as breezes start to blow a little stronger. That’s no problem in the valley but it is a worry in the mountains where a Red Flag warning has been issued for the period from 2 p.m. Tuesday to 8 p.m. Wednesday.
The warning includes the area of the massive King fire. A Red Flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions are predicted to occur, meaning the possibility of strong winds, low humidity and warm temperatures.

The high in Sacramento region on Tuesday is predicted to be in the mid-80s. By Thursday the daytime high is expected to decrease to the mid-70s.
