No 100-degree readings are forecast in Sacramento this week as the region enjoys a run of weather with below-average or average daytime high temperatures.
Tuesday is forecast to be the coolest day of the week with a high of just 85 degrees expected in Sacramento. The remainder of the week is predicted to come in around the 90-95 degree range.
That’s a far cry from last week when the region sweltered through three days of 100-plus weather. That extreme trio of days included a Barstow-like 108 degrees on Wednesday.
Showers and a few thunderstorms may occur in Northern California as a weather system nudges the area. Some sprinkles are possible in Sacramento and along the Interstate 80 corridor Tuesday afternoon.
