It’s been nearly a month since Sacramento has had a 100-degree day -- and don’t look for one anytime soon.

The summer is running out and so is the opportunity for another scorcher to bake the city. The last 100-degree was recorded Aug. 14.

Since then, it’s been hot on occasion with a couple of days in the high 90s, but no 100-degree reading. The first day of fall is Sept. 22 and the National Weather Service records note that even in autumn Sacramento can get hot weather.

The latest date it has reached 100 degrees or higher was Oct. 10, 1991.

Weather Service forecasters are calling for extremely nice conditions on Monday with a high of only 77 degrees predicted for Sacramento. That’s a good dozen degrees below normal for mid-September.

Monday: Sunny, with a high near 77. South southwest wind 8 to 10 mph.
