Two weeks without a 100-degree days in August? Sold!

The last time the mercury hit 100 degrees in Sacramento was August 14 when the high was 103 degrees. Since then the maximum has hovered near the century mark, but not crossed over from the high-90s to the 100s.

The National Weather Service forecasts that the temperatures for the next 7 days will also not reach 100 degrees. The temperatures today and through the weekend are predicted to be even cooler than last week.

The high on Monday in Sacramento is forecast to be only 87 degrees. The next 7 degrees are predicted to be below the late-August average of 92 degrees.

So, enjoy, but don’t forget that the summer of 2016 is likely to still see more 100-degree days. The latest date it has reached 100 degrees or higher in Sacramento was Oct. 10, 1991.

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

Rafters gather on the banks of the American River in Rancho Cordova on Saturday, Aug. 20, 2016, as the final installment of three non-permitted rafting trips this summer. Alcohol bans are in effect, Sacramento County Regional Parks officials say.
