The record-tying high of 106 degrees on Monday won’t be replicated Tuesday, but it will still be plenty hot in Sacramento.

A strong high pressure system is forecast to continue the hot weather across most of interior Northern California, according to the National Weather Service. A hint of a Delta breeze will bring slight cooling.

The high on Tuesday is expected to be 99 degrees. Tuesday’s comparatively benign weather follows two days of 106-degree readings in Sacramento.

Monday’s 106 tied the record also reached in Sacramento in 1967 during the Summer of Love when hippies headed for San Francisco. The weather was probably pretty groovy by the bay.

Looking ahead, forecasts are calling for about normal temperatures on Saturday and Sunday: the low 90s. The detailed, seven-day forecast from the NWS for the Sacramento region:

Tuesday: Sunny and hot, with a high near 99. Southwest wind 5 to 7 mph.
