Sacramento’s warm late-Spring days will continue this weekend. The National Weather Service predicted a high temperature of 88 for Saturday, a few degrees above normal.

On Friday, Sacramento Executive Airport also topped out at 88 degrees, and downtown reached 90, according to weather service data.

“It’s going to be one of the warmer days we’ve seen so far this year,” said Holly Osborne, a National Weather Service forecaster in Sacramento. “The ridge of high pressure over the Bay Area is bringing us dry, warm temperatures. We’ll cool off tomorrow by several degrees. The ridge is going to shift to the east.”

Osborne said a trough is approaching the west coast, also contributing to the slight cooling expected here.
