Saturday is shaping up to be nearly perfect weather-wise, with a high of 84 degrees, a light wind in the afternoon and a low of 57 tonight.
High temperatures will slowly climb going into the week, reaching 97 degrees by Wednesday.
The rainfall seen in the foothills and in Northern counties over the last few days has largely cleared up, said meteorologist Nathan Owen of the National Weather Service. About three-tenths of an inch fell Friday night near Soda Springs, with a tenth of an inch or less falling in Nevada City and Grass Valley. There was little to no precipitation in Sacramento.
The National Weather Service has issued excessive-heat warnings and heat advisories across Southern California, southern Nevada and southern Arizona, warning of “record-breaking, dangerous heat.” In some deserts, temperatures will be as high as 120 degrees Sunday through Wednesday.
