Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Mike Smith is a meteorologist with the national Weather Service in Sacramento.  

"Well, obviously it's a over a once in a 100 year event, so it's fairly rare," he says.

Smith says Sacramento is also likely to see a record high temperature today -- at 70 degrees. The old record was 69.

"Typically this time of year in Sacramento, we get right around the mid 50s and we're expecting a high today of 70s so that's about 15 degrees above normal," Smith says. "Some places in the northern valley will be pushing about 20 degrees above normal for this time of year."
