Good morning. Here’s what you need to know today.

Weather ups and downs: The first part of the week will feature see-saw weather. Today’s high temperature in Sacramento is expected to be a warm 78 degrees, before dipping 10 degrees on Tuesday. Then, conditions rebound to 80 degrees on Wednesday. It’s all thanks to a quick-moving cold front.

Kings pride: Despite three head coaches, illness and injuries hobbling key players and a lackluster NBA season, the Sacramento Kings are still wildly popular with many fans. With near-sellout crowds at games, Kings owners say season ticket sales for the new arena are accelerating.

Off the streets: After years spent living on Sacramento city streets, a 69-year-old woman finds a ‘dignified’ new home, thanks to efforts by multiple city staffers. Ryan Lillis tells the story in his City Beat column.

Stage debut: Edgy theater company Capital Stage announces its 2015-2016 lineup of plays – and a new artistic director.

Cannabis careers: With California possibly voting on legalizing recreational pot in 2016, interest in marijuana businesses is high. Some would-be entrepreneurs showed up Sunday for a cannabis career seminar.
