Sacramento can expect high temperatures in the triple digits again Monday.
David Rowe is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sacramento. He says things should cool off mid week.
"Well, the high-pressure will weaken a bit," says Rowe. "The marine layer will start to deepen along the coast. We should see a return of the delta breeze into the Sacramento Region bringing us back into the low to mid nineties by Wednesday for high temperatures.
Rowe also says smoke from nearby wildfires kept temperatures a little cooler over the weekend by reflecting sunlight.
"The air quality hasn't been that great," says Rowe. "However, here in the Sacramento area we haven't quite had the worst of it. It's mostly been to the west of us over the weekend. The western part of the Sacramento Region, like Davis, Woodland, Vacaville, Fairfield have had more smoke actually than Sacramento itself."
Meanwhile, Cal Fire says the Jerusalem Fire burning in Lake and Napa counties is now 90 percent contained.
