Pleasant weather in Sacramento today, possible storms in Sierra

It’s late May and Sacramento is still enjoying pleasant and cool weather.

Temperatures in the region will top out at around 75 degrees today under partly sunny skies. That’s a good five degrees below normal for this time of year.

Up in the Sierra, there’s a chance of afternoon thunderstorms. But that rain likely won’t make its way down into the valley today.

However, the National Weather Services said there’s a 25 percent chance for afternoon rain Thursday afternoon and into Friday.

The pleasant weather is expected to stick around for a few days. Temperatures are predicted to rise into the low 80s by Sunday.
