Keep those fans and water bottles handy: – more triple-digit days are on the way.
According to the National Weather Service, Sacramento hit 104 degrees Saturday – not a record but still toasty. The record high for that date was 111 degrees, set in 1933.
Lack of Delta breeze will keep temperatures warm, said meteorologist Idamis Del Valle of the weather service’s Sacramento station. “We don’t have the (marine) influence, but we could see a little bit of a cool down.”
Sunday’s forecast calls for a high of 98 degrees and low of 59, Del Valle said. Monday also will stay below 100 with a high of 96 predicted. But then, the mercury edges back up with Tuesday and Wednesday both expected to top 100 degrees.
