Hot weather returns to Sacramento this week with near 100-degree readings predicted.

While the high temperatures on Monday and Tuesday are predicted to be just about normal for July 11 – a warm 92 degrees – the remainder of the week looks to be hot. The National Weather Service is predicting that maximum readings for Wednesday through Friday will be around 100 degrees.

The warm-up is due to the rebuilding of high pressure and the paucity of a Delta breeze. If the temperature reaches 100 this week, it will be the first century mark reading of July 2016 in Sacramento.

The detailed, 7-day forecast for the Sacramento region from the NWS:

Monday: Sunny, with a high near 92. North northwest wind 6 to 9 mph.

Tonight: Clear, with a low around 59. West southwest wind 6 to 9 mph becoming south southeast after midnight.

Tuesday: Sunny, with a high near 92. South southeast wind 5 to 7 mph becoming west southwest in the afternoon.

Tuesday night: Clear, with a low around 59. West southwest wind around 6 mph becoming south after midnight.

Wednesday: Sunny and hot, with a high near 97. Calm wind becoming southwest around 6 mph in the afternoon.

Wednesday night: Clear, with a low around 60.

Thursday: Sunny and hot, with a high near 99.

Here are six tips to help Sacramentans survive the heat this summer. Temperatures in the Sacrameto area already broke 100 degrees on Tuesday, May 31, 2016, which means Sacramento may be in store for several heatwaves this coming summer.
