I'm bringing this back up for discussion due to the strange weather patterns we in the SF Bay have been having this year.

What is it like in Chico, Sacramento and Redding this year, or the past year or so? I would like to hear from natives, especially those that have lived elsewhere.

Thank you.

Don't know about Chico or Sac, but it is already hotter earlier than usual for us this time of year... the following temps are from the Weather Channel for the next 2 weeks...Note these temps come from the Airport which is usually lower than most of Redding.

Thu 114, Fri 113, Sat 106, Sun 102, Mon 110, Tue 113, Wed 112, Thu 114, Fri 111, Sat 111, Sun 109, Mon 109, Tue 107, Wed 107. And we haven't even hit our hottest months of July and August.

Im a big weather nerd and track it by month, I usually wait until after the month is over.

May 2015

Great weather in Sacramento. All days mostly sunny to party cloudy

High Temps:

70's - 22 days
80's - 7 days
90's - 1 day (actual temp 92F) - feels like temp was below 89F

Low Temps:

All 31 days in Sacramento were in the LOW to mid 50's. - just like the Bay Area.

All Good air days.

Sacramento compared to Burrr- Chilly San Francisco

High Temps:

For 10 days: the High Temp in SF never made it above 59F - Burrrr!

Not a single day made it into the 70's in SF in May

Only one day of 68F in SF in May

For 30 days: the High Temp was only in the 50's to low 60's in SF in May

Low Temps:
All 31 days upper 40's to low 50's.

Note: San Francisco and Sacramento morning and night temps were only slightly different, At night and morning, San Francisco was on average 3-5 degrees cooler.

Sacramento is one of few places in the Central Valley that have cool nights and mornings similar to the Bay Area. Chico does not get this type of cooling; it's too far away from the source of this cooling which is the SF Bay/Sacramento Delta which draws in all that cool air from the Cold Pacific, prevailing winds from the Southwest send all that cooling directly to Sacramento -- we call it the Delta Breeze.

Phoenix usually hits 100 degrees the first week of May. When does Chico start to see 100 deg + weather? Phoenix heat is non stop, day after day after day from the beginning of May until the end of September. Is Chico really really hot all summer long or are there brief periods of cool upper 80's low 90's weather? Thanks.
I used to live in Chico, and yes, it can get hot. I recall 117F! But there are great places to cool off. I would jump in Big Chico Creek in the summer. One thing that people don't typically know is that the Sacramento about 5 miles west of Chico stays cool all summer (60F or lower!), so a great place to go cool off. It is cool enough in the morning that you can do most things before 10 am or so, and Chico is full of wonderful street trees. It is almost like an urban forest. It will be much easier to deal with than Phoenix. According to the stats I see, Chico cools down much more than Phoenix at night.

Dewpoints wouldn't get any higher than mid 60s I'd imagine, but it's definitely not a comfortable heat. It can be downright oppressive.
