The National Weather Service is predicting a high temperature of 87 degrees for Sunday in Sacramento. Temperatures will steadily decline with the coolest weather slated for Thursday.

“As we go later in the week, a trough is going to dig deeper … and cool us down,” said Travis Wilson, an NWS forecaster in Sacramento.
