TODAY: Sunny with highs in the mid to upper 90s. Sierra highs in the low 80s. An isolated thunderstorm possible this afternoon. TONIGHT: Clear skies with lows in the mid 60s. Mostly clear with lows in the mid 40s.

The weather has been pleasant over the last couple of days, but it’s going to get hot again.

Wednesday’s highs of 97 are close to average temps for this time of year and then widespread 100's return starting on Thursday.

With 100's returning to the forecast, let's take a look at how many 100 degree days we’ve had so far for the month of July:

  • Sacramento Executive Airport: 8 days
  • Downtown Sacramento: 9 days
  • Stockton: 10 days
  • Modesto: 12 days
  • Vacaville: 10 days

This stretch of triple digit temperatures will stick around for several days. Check out the 10-day planner! Whoa!

  • Stay in the A/C
  • If you are outside, take plenty of breaks.
