SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A big warming trend is underway and will take temperatures into the 90s by the end of the weekend.
Peak heat is expected Sunday with record-breaking temperatures possible.
Records this time of year are in the upper 80s to low 90s. The Sierra will have a slight chance of afternoon showers both today and Saturday, then turn warm and dry Sunday. The high temperature record for Sacramento Sunday is 89 for the Executive Airport and 91 for the downtown location. The record for Sunday in Stockton is 90.
Streams, river and the Delta will be very cold from continued Sierra snowmelt. Here's a look at some of the temperatures in the region.
Even experienced swimmers can lose muscle control in the chilly water. An important reminder to keep an eye on children and wear a life jacket if kayaking or paddle boarding.
Highs will stay near 90° on Monday then start to cool slightly by the middle of next week.
