AM Sacramento: Here’s what you need to know for Saturday

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

Fall on hold: It won’t feel like fall this weekend as temperatures ramp up in the Sacramento region. The forecast for Sacramento today calls for sunny skies, with a high near 92. The low will drop to around 60 tonight. On Sunday, the temperature should reach a summer-like 94 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

Probation revoked: Former Sacramento realty titan Michael Lyon had his probation revoked Friday in his first court appearance since his arrest on drug charges, and his attorney acknowledged later that Lyon faces the possibility of being sent to prison for up to four years.

Soaring tribute: Folsom leaders plan to celebrate the connections between Johnny Cash and the city today as they unveil the first section of the Johnny Cash Trail and Overpass. The $3.8 million overpass at Folsom Lake Crossing Road and East Natoma Street is a pedestrian and bike bridge designed to echo the prison’s east gate guard towers.
