Good morning. Here’s what you need to know today:
Still winter?: Unseasonably warm temperatures will continue in Sacramento. Downtown is expected to hit 74 degrees today, according to the National Weather Service. NWS forecaster Tom Dang said temperatures are about 10 degrees above normal for this time of year.
Spring forward: Did you remember to reset your clocks? Daylight saving time began at 2 a.m. today, so adjust car clocks, watch hands and even water sprinkler timers. It is time to spring forward as most states set their clocks one hour ahead of the standard time to make better use of daylight and conserving energy. In Sacramento, today also is the start of the spring/summer watering rules, which will allow residents to increase to two the number of days per week they may water lawns, depending on their address. Residents should adjust water sprinkler timers as needed to remain in compliance with city rules.
Growing city: Folsom will begin its long-planned march across Highway 50 this summer, a move that eventually could bring 10,000 new homes to an expanse of rolling hills now dotted mainly with oak trees.
Fees to aid programs: Sacramento County leaders want to increase fees on marriage, birth and death documents to fund domestic violence programs, pointing to more than 21,000 crisis calls made each year to three local shelter programs.
Development stalls: Roseville’s latest effort to land a large hotel and conference center has ended after a South African investor declined to finance the deal and asked the city to bear the upfront risk.
Sac State falls: A last-second shot by Mikh McKinney bounced off the rim, leaving Sacramento State empty-handed Saturday in its pursuit of the men’s basketball program’s first Big Sky Conference championship.
