Extreme Cold Weather


Extreme cold events are not common in the City of Roseville. Generally, the City has mild winter seasons with no expectation of ground ice or freezing water for extended periods of time. Occasionally, freezing temperatures in the upper atmosphere will create snow or hail, but it is rare to see any remain on the ground without melting almost immediately.

Placer County has faced periods of cold temperatures in the past that constitute an extreme meteorological event. Most recently in the late 1980s the County faced such conditions. The only identified at-risk population in those events was the homeless. The City has a number of shelters where many of the homeless can find shelter from the cold.
