Another hot day is in the forecast before the Sacramento region starts to cool.
After a high of 97 degrees on Sunday, the National Weather Service is forecasting a maximum of 99 degrees on Monday. The normal for July 20 in Sacramento is 94 degrees.
Along with elevated high temperatures, the extra humidity provided by remnants of ex-Hurricane Delores are resulting in clammy conditions.
There’s even a slight chance of some sprinkles today in Sacramento.
For people who prefer their summer days not so hot or moist, the good news is high temperatures the remainder of the week will fall below average. Look for afternoon highs in Sacramento to range from 88 to 93 degrees through Sunday.
