There’s little chance of another record-breaking day of heat, but it will still be hot on Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.
The high on Tuesday was 95 degrees in Sacramento, breaking the previous all-time high of 94 degrees recorded in 1991. Wednesday’s high is expected to be 90 degrees, far short of the record of 98 degrees, also set in 1991.
A low pressure system moving through Southern California will bring cooling to the north state over the next few days. In addition, a Pacific storm system is predicted to move into Northern California, bringing more cooling on Saturday and a chance of rain to some locations, according to the NWS.
