High pressure over the coast is delivering blue skies that will continue through the weekend.

The National Weather Service is forecasting that morning fog will burn off in the Sacramento Valley each day, giving way to sunny weather. The high temperature Saturday and Sunday in Sacramento is predicted to be in the mid-50s.

The nice weather is predicted to continue until mid-week, when rain returns to Northern California. There is a chance that umbrellas might be needed Wednesday before the main rainstorm moves in that night.
