After five straight days in the 80s, a slight cooling trend arrives on a breeze Tuesday.
Starting Thursday, the high temperatures were: 84, 85, 84, 86, 84. That all changes Tuesday as a light northwest wind ushers in a high of just 75 degrees in the Sacramento region.
Most of Northern California is likely to feel cooler weather, generally 10-15 degrees below what the north state experienced over the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
Looking ahead, temperatures should remain for a couple of days in the mid-70s, which is a little above normal. The average high for early April is around 70 degrees in Sacramento.
