    We know the question on your mind, Sacramentans — when’s it going to get warm again?

    Thanks to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center, we know what temperatures and precipitation trends to expect in our city for March, April, and May.

    While exact weather conditions typically can’t be predicted more than a week in advance, here’s a seasonal outlook to help you prepare for what spring will bring.

    Reminder: The first day of spring is on Monday, March 20.

    🌡️ Temperature

    Think warm. This spring, Sac has a 40-50% chance of temperatures being higher than normal.

    🌨️ Precipitation

    Expect average precipitation. The City of Trees is predicted to experience ordinary rainfall amounts for the season (~2.5 inches).
    The Buy
    Spring vacation clothes to bring some color and life with you on this year’s vacation. We’re liking: Santa Barbara Design Studio’s “Le Beach” bag and this crochet swimsuit cover up.
