Today in Sacramento: Here’s what you need to know for Tuesday

Yolo County e-cigarette ban will be discussed

Yolo County supervisors will discuss a proposed ban on e-cigarettes in county buildings and vehicles, indoor public areas and workplaces. The ban would apply to all places where traditional cigarettes are already prohibited. The board meeting begins at 9 a.m., Board of Supervisors Chambers, 625 Court St., Room 206, Woodland.

Much more like fall

The Delta breeze is really blowing this morning, signaling a change in the weather. While Monday afternoon was pretty hot for late September in Sacramento (91 degrees), the conditions for walking the dog or going for a bike ride on Tuesday will be much more comfortable. The National Weather Service predicts a high of just 81 degrees Tuesday afternoon.
