Warm weather continues National Weather Service

Weather in the 70s is forecast to continue today in Sacramento.

The unseasonably warm weather is evident in the blooming trees and flowering bulbs pushing up through the soil. The calendar may say winter, but the warm ground and mild climate is fooling Mother Nature.

The normal high temperature in Sacramento for Feb. 11 is 60 degrees. High pressure over the west coast is responsible for the warm and dry conditions. Slightly cooler weather is predicted for Friday and Saturday, followed by a warming on Sunday and Monday.
