Hot again, but relief on the way to Sacramento

Above-normal temperatures continue to maintain a presence in Sacramento – but the 80s are on the way, according to the National Weather Service.

The continuing hot stretch in Sacramento has included 100 degrees on Thursday, 103 on Friday, 104 on Saturday and 99 on Sunday. The temperature is expected to stair-step down to a maximum of 94 degrees on Monday in Sacramento.

The National Weather Service is predicting cooler temperatures for much of the work week as high pressure shifts east ahead of a low pressure system now in the eastern Pacific Ocean.

More substantial cooling is expected to gradually develop, leading to highs in the 80s on Wednesday and Thursday. The detailed, 7-day forecast from the NWS for the Sacramento region:
