80 degrees later in week for Sacramento?

The high temperature in Sacramento is expected to be a little warmer today than on Monday as high pressure re-builds in Sacramento.

After a high of 71 on Monday, the high in the Sacramento region should top out at 75 degrees on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

The NWS expects weak weather systems will continue to deliver a slight chance of late afternoon or early evening showers and thunderstorms in the northern Sierra Nevada on Tuesday.

Otherwise, dry and mild temperatures are forecast through the end of the work week. The next chance of more widespread precipitation is predicted for Sunday.

Trace amounts of rain were reported late Monday evening or early Tuesday morning at Travis Air Force Base, Sacramento International Airport and Blue Canyon. The Marysville-Yuba City area recorded 0.01 of an inch and less than a tenth of an inch fell in western Plumas County.
