Outdoor living is possible most of the year in a Mediterranean climate where 287 days of sunshine are virtually guaranteed. While summer afternoons can be hot, the mercury routinely dips into the 60s (Fahrenheit) come nightfall. Winters are cool and often damp, but freezing temperatures are extremely rare. Spring and fall bring glorious changes of color to the urban forest that gives Sacramento the nickname “City of Trees.”
