Temperatures are rising as high pressure aloft moves over the west coast, bringing the 90s back to Sacramento.

The last time it was in the 90s in Sacramento was May 1 when the mercury reached 94 degrees. After a maximum in the high 80s today, the National Weather Service forecasts two days in the 90s.

Some locations, such as Redding and Red Bluff, could hit the highest temperatures of the year for those cities.

As the month draws to a close, it appears that Sacramento will fall short on rainfall for May. A total of 0.19 of an inch has fallen in May 2015. Normally, the city gets about three-quarters of an inch in May.
