SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – We’ve enjoyed a break from the heat, but temperatures will head back into the mid-90s this week.

Warm and dry conditions will continue this week along with periods of gusty north winds. Gustier winds will likely be mid- to late-week. These conditions will bring increased fire weather concerns to NorCal.

As the storm to the north of us moves to the east, a high-pressure system will move in and stay with us all week long, giving us above-average temperatures until next weekend.

Sacramento will be in the upper-80s Tuesday, then into the lower 90s on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. The high for Sunday will be 88.
