After the torrid weather on Tuesday, Sacramento has already received the average allotment of 100-degree days in June.
The National Weather Service notes that a Sacramento June usually has four days of 100-degree weather or above. This month has seen four days of century mark weather and more are forecast beginning Sunday.
The 100-degree days this month came on June 2 (100), June 3 (104), June 5 (103) and Tuesday when the maximum was 102 degrees. The average number of 100-degree readings or higher in a calendar year is 22.
The weather will still be hot for the next several days, but temperatures will be mercifully short of 100 degrees. The NWS predicts extreme hot weather will return Sunday and continue into early next week.
