Warm weather will give way to the crisp chill of fall this week as temperatures drop nearly 10 degrees by Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.
After a weekend of unseasonably warm weather, with highs Sunday hitting near-80 in downtown Sacramento, temperatures in the Sacramento region will dip to more typical temperatures – hovering in the mid-60s to round out the week, forecasters said.
A slight chance of rain was expected Wednesday night as a storm system in the Gulf of Alaska pushes precipitation toward the Pacific Northwest.
Meteorologist Brooke Bingaman said the Sacramento region would likely receive only a fraction of an inch of rain from this system – a hundredth to a tenth of an inch in some areas – and if any falls, it would happen overnight.
No rain was expected Sunday into the beginning of the work week.
