Sacramento’s sunny, warm conditions could give way to midweek rain – maybe

This NOAA satellite image taken shows a warm front moving into the Pacific Northwest with isolated light rain showers that will not extend south of California’s far-north reaches. Sunday morning’s cloudy skies in the Sacramento region are predicted to clear out as the day progresses.

After the clouds clear out Sunday morning, Sacramento will enjoy warm weather and sunny skies.

The National Weather Service is predicting a high temperature of 79 degrees on Sunday.

“These conditions should continue for the next few days,” said Travis Wilson, a weather service forecaster. “Temperatures will be relatively stagnant.”

Temperatures on Monday and Tuesday are expected to reach 80 and 79, respectively.

However, a system is expected to hit the Sacramento region Wednesday, but whether it will bring precipitation is uncertain, Wilson said.

“The models are not in agreement,” he said. “One model shows the system splitting and bringing very little rain to our area. Another model shows decent precipitation.”

By Monday, forecasters will have a better idea of how the system will affect Sacramento, Wilson said.

Here’s the seven-day forecast:

Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 79. Southwest wind 3 to 8 mph.

Sunday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 55. South wind 5 to 7 mph becoming calm in the evening.

Monday: Sunny, with a high near 80. Calm wind becoming north-northwest around 6 mph in the afternoon.

Monday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 55. Calm wind.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 79. Light and variable wind.

Tuesday night: A 20 percent chance of showers after 11 p.m. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 60.

Wednesday: A 40 percent chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 74.

Wednesday night: A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 57.

Thursday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 75.

Thursday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 56.

Friday: Sunny, with a high near 80.
