Temperatures Could Reach Record Highs In Sacramento


The higher temperatures will be sticking around for another day-- even approaching record territory in Sacramento Monday.

Jim Mathews with the National Weather Service says the record for downtown Sacramento is 81 degrees, and temperatures today are expected in the upper 70's. But that's forecast to change starting Tuesday night.

Some rain is on the way, which will bring cooler temperatures. Mathews says we can expect a little bit of snow in the higher elevations of the Sierra.

"Generally, we're expecting amounts of an inch or two over the higher elevations of the Sierra, probably above the passes so above 7,500 to 8,000 feet," says Mathews. "Although snow levels will be lowering down to near-pass level, we don't expect significant accumulations at pass level."

Mathews says there isn't much rain expected in this storm-- perhaps about a tenth of an inch to fall in the Sacramento area. Dry weather is expected to return to Northern California on Thursday.
