I am going to be in Sacramento from Thursday through Monday. Coming from sizzling hot Houston that is still 80 degrees at night, I don't know what clothes to bring if it sis going to be 50 degrees at night. When in the day does it heat up. Do I need a heavy jacket for the evening? Thanks in advance

That depends on what time of evening you are talking about. And heavy makes me think you'll be in the snow!

So a pull over sweat shirt will be fine - it's about 60 degrees by midnight. And depending on the day temps - could be 80 degrees at 8 pm.

Wear what you do in Texas - we wear the same, just it's more comfortable here

I am one of these people who feels really cold when it is 60 degrees. I have been really cold in California--Petaluma this time last year in fact. So when I read the post about how sacramento is not 100 degrees all time time and the range is form as low as 50s in the summer, I thought I might need something very warm in the evening. But I get your point. Thanks.

LOL wow. Well, Petaluma is my area, and yes, it's a much different climate there because it's only about 38 miles from San Francisco and the coast. Dramatically different when you factor in the fog and condensation.

It's never really cold here at night. Even the winters are pretty mild. I would agree with CityGirl. Just wear what you wear in Texas. Two days ago at about 10 p.m on Saturday night I was walking around midtown in shorts, and I noticed a lot of other people were too.

It isn't that 50-60 is cold, but that the wind is usually blowing when it is that cool.

I usually don't feel cold until temperatures are below about 50. If I'm not doing much physical activity I may feel cold during the summer mornings if I'm wearing shorts. Usually it warms up enough by 9AM.

I would suggest dressing for warm weather, but keep a sweatshirt or light jacket available in case you feel cold.

It's 7:37 PM right now, the sun is starting to set, and it seems to be about 87 degrees. It should be hovering around 90 F during the day, with mid to upper 50s for morning lows. That means it should be quite mild all evening long. By the time it cools off, you'll be asleep.

Like others have mentioned just dress for warm summer weather, but bring a light sweater or sweatshirt for the night especially if you're used to warm humid Houston nights. I haven't worn a jacket since about April, but I am usually always on the warm side and 55 for me this time of year is more 'refreshing' than 'cold'. We are having a 'cooler' than normal summer so far in Sacramento, but that means 80's and low 90's instead of our typical 90's and low 100's..Plus it is still clear and sunny everyday. This isn't the Bay Area. The early evening hours have been just about perfect in the 70's and the coolest part of the day where temps have been in the 50's isn't really until the early AM hours from around 4am to 7am. Enjoy your visit.

Well by my standards(raised in arctic Alaska) nude is pretty much as good as I can get. But like a shirt and shorts is pretty good maybe a light jacket for the evenings
