Lake Wildwood Weather & Climate

The Gold Rush Country in the Sierra Nevada foothills of northern California enjoys four seasons. Although not as pronounced as the seasons in the eastern U.S., they are distinct. Summers are warm and dry, with pleasant temperatures and not the extreme heat of the lower valley regions. Autumn has mild days and crisp, cool nights and the leaves take on the hues of gold, yellow and purple. Winters are mild during the day with cold temperatures at night. Occasionally snow falls at these elevations, but rarely sticks for more than a few hours. Cool rainy days are the normal winter weather pattern, with the rainy season running November through March. Spring is delightful as the days lengthen and wildflowers spread over the hills.
