The Sacramento region is getting more warm weather this week, but residents in the Sierra Nevada may see a few thunderstorms in the evenings.

The National Weather Service forecasts a slight chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorm starting Tuesday through next weekend at elevations above 5,000 feet. Temperatures in the Lake Tahoe region will remain in the 70s during the day and fall into the high 40s at night.

There’s a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms on Wednesday night, according to the forecast. Those showers won’t make it to the valley this week, though.

Temperatures for Sacramento are expected to stay in the 80s through Thursday and then dip into the low 70s on Friday. There’s a slight chance for showers next Saturday.
