Weather Roseville CA 95747
Would you believe it! I wrote the first part of this post on weather in Roseville CA (dictated actually) while walking through a delightful West Roseville neighborhood delivering community updates to my neighbors. It's the middle of winter, and while it was a wee bit chilly (in the 50s) at 4:30 pm, I was happy not to be walking in snow. I have two sets of grandkids who live in snow country and enjoy it. But I have to admit, I'm loving our winter weather overall and especially looking forward to sunshine and maybe temps in the 70s very soon! In fact, it is supposed to be a lovely 69 today! 🙂
Now, I’m not going to tell you our Roseville weather is perfect. We get rain! (Not as much as we need but that's a whole other post…). We get fog (but not NEARLY as much as Sacramento). We get HOT days (I do LOVE air conditioning and our wonderful DELTA BREEZES). But compared to many states, it’s a definite delight.
As Sperling's Best Places puts it,
“Roseville, California, gets 24 inches of rain per year. The US average is 39. Snowfall is 0 inches. The average US city gets 26 inches of snow per year. The number of days with any measurable precipitation is 40. On average, there are 247 sunny days per year in Roseville, California.”
Alternatively, check out these recent weather headlines from around the U.S.:
- Super Bowl Weekend System Will Bring Snow From Rockies to East Coast
- Record Cold in East
- Colder Temperatures Return to Central, Eastern U.S. as February Begins
- Super Bowl 52 Forecast: Bitter Cold, Snow Will Blast Minneapolis the Week of the Big Game
- Brutal cold torments the US, and ‘the worst is yet to come'
YIKES! Happily – NONE of those headlines reflect our weather in Roseville CA 95747 OR 95678 OR 95661 for 2018 or even 2017. It also doesn't reflect the weather of our “next door neighbor” of Sacramento CA. Hoorays all around. I guess that's why California is enjoying the privilege of being one of the top states for retirement. AND why Sperling rates it:
In fact, here's a video of photos taken in and around Sun City Roseville to give you a flavor of our winter weather joys. 🙂
Drought Weather Roseville CA
As you may have heard, we did experience one bit of weather that caused headlines for several years – too little rain. Happily, last year's rainfall put an end to the drought for the time being. This year is still too early to call, though there are some weather watchers who are concerned, while others are saying, there is plenty of time for more rain.
And check out all the lovely water we are still enjoying from the last rains. The ducks, geese, and egrets are enjoying these ponds thoroughly!
One big positive to the drought was that it led to some really sharp-looking front and back yards that use much less water. They weren't trend-setters, mind you. Sun City Roseville has led the way in drought-friendly, low maintenance gorgeous yards for over two decades and they still look GREAT! It's nice to see more neighbors joining in that particular garden trend!
Roseville CA Winter Weather Averages
Curious about Roseville Calif. weather in winter? Here's what my old winter widget was showing for January 31, 2018:
Check out these facts and figures to show off our Roseville CA weather averages in winter:
According to Weather Spark, “The average Weather in Roseville California…the winters are cold, wet, and partly cloudy. Over the course of the year, the temperature typically varies from 39°F to 96°F and is rarely below 32°F or above 104°F.
Snow Weather Roseville CA?
Those temps (in the last paragraph) would make snow pretty unlikely here in Roseville, don't you think? In fact, according to a National Weather Service 2010 report for the Climate of Sacramento, it has only snowed a very few times in the Sacramento area.
As the Sacbee summed up, “Many people probably recall the trace recorded on Dec. 7, 2009, and some of us might remember the “big snow” of 1976 when 2 inches fell. But did you know the record was set in 1888 when 3.5 inches fell? And, yes, the last time it snowed in Sacramento was Dec. 7, 2009″
So I had to chuckle at the Intellicast.com report of the average temperatures, especially for the months of December, January, February, and March. Can you guess why?
If you guessed the “average snow” of .1″ for January, that would be it. Perhaps they are factoring in the occasional frost we get? 🙂
And check out this cool Youtube video from December 2022 – listing even MORE snow dates than I've been able to find (turns out a lot of these were such little snow, they didn't make the “record” but they DID happen. 😀
Including 1932, 1964 (maybe), 1976, 1982, 1990, and 1996. 😀
Cold Weather Fun In Roseville
Shhhh. Don't tell the weather peep, but we do get snow every year at Christmas. I have proof. Watch!
Granted, it was ONLY in downtown Roseville and ONLY for the Christmas holiday fun. Not to mention, it was only faux snow! Personally, that's my fave kind of snow. Right up there with snow globes and snowy scenes on Facebook. How about you? 🙂

That doesn't count the tornado apps for when I visit relatives in tornado area, the earthquake apps I use when I hear reports of earthquakes on the coast, etc. (Yes, I'm a weather and news geek – I admit it! 🙂 ). Here are some I love in order of useage:

- The Weather Channel
- KCRA Weather
- My Quake
You may have noticed that I don't have a hurricane app. If I were ever to move to Florida, as many retirees do, I would definitely get one or more of those. I'm very grateful we don't have to deal with hurricanes here in Roseville CA. Another PLUS for all of us – including those retiring in Roseville!
