The Walnut Grove Area has a very mild climate and an abundance of sunshine the majority of the year.  The area is noted for its pleasant "Delta" breezes which keep it several degrees cooler than the surrounding Sacramento Valley.  Over half of the total annual precipitation falls during the period of November through February, yet significant rainfall only occurs on about 10 days monthly during the winter months.   Heavy rainfall and damaging winds are rare.  Prevailing winds are southerly all year.  Light and moderate winter fog is generally confined to the morning and evening hours with an occasional dense fog occurring in the winter months.
