Sunshine and increasing high temperatures are forecast for the rest of Labor Day weekend in Sacramento, marking at least for now the end of fall-heralding conditions that teased the region for the last couple of days.

After pleasant string of high temperatures in the 80s, Sunday will mark a foray back into the 90s that starts a steady return toward late-summer heat.

On Sunday, the high temperature will reach 91 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. For Labor Day, expect a high of 96 degrees.

“Later this week we are expecting a warming trend,” said Idamis Delvalle, a meteorologist intern with the National Weather Service in Sacramento. “We should see some triple-digits on Thursday.”

By Tuesday, highs will flirt with 100 degrees and beyond, with 103 degrees possible by Thursday. The high, dry heat is expected to remain at least through next next weekend.

Here’s the seven-day forecast:

Sunday: Sunny, with a high near 91. West wind 5 to 11 mph.
