There are 608 square miles in Sutter County and the county seat is Yuba City. Sutter County is home to the Sutter Buttes, known as the “World’s Smallest Mountain Range.” This volcanic formation provides relief to the otherwise seemingly flat Sacramento Valley.

The Sutter Bypass, which diverts flood waters from the Sacramento River, cuts through the heart of Sutter County.

The station for Central Valley Weather is powered by a Davis Vantage Pro 2 weather station. The data is collected every 5 seconds and uploaded to the site every 20 seconds. This site and its data are collected using Cumulus Software. The station is comprised of an anemometer (mounted 33 ft. in the air), a rain gauge, thermo-hydro sensor, ultra violet light sensor and a solar radiation sensor that are situated in optimal positions for the highest accuracy possible. The station sits at an altitude of 423 ft. above sea level.
I would like to thank everyone who has assisted me over the years in setting up this website. If I have missed anyone, (very possible), please accept my most humble apologies.
