Spring 2024 weather forecast for Sacramento, CA

Prepare for spring weather in Sacramento with these seasonal temperature and precipitation outlooks.


We’re ready for blue skies like this again.

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).

March madness

March is our city’s rainiest month with ~12 days of rain on average. Daily highs are expected to be around 63° — similar to February. Heads up: We get an extra hour of daylight when Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday, March 10, at 2 a.m.

All about April

Things are heating up — this month, the average daily high increases to 70°. Make sure to pick up some sunscreen, too. April’s UV index can range from 3-5 as well, reaching its peak around the middle of the day.

May-ke it your month

Temps continue to rise as our daily high averages around 78° — which we think is perfect hiking weather. The 52° nightly temps also make May nights the beginning of our opening-a-window-right-before-bed season (which is really the best way to sleep).
