East Quincy is a census-designated place (CDP) in Plumas County, California, United States. The population was 2,489 at the 2010 census, up from 2,398 at the 2000 census.

Geography[edit]

East Quincy is located at 39°56′7″N 120°54′28″W / 39.93528°N 120.90778°W / 39.93528; -120.90778 (39.935153, -120.907670).[2]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 12.1 square miles (31 km2), all of it land.

Climate[edit]

East-Quincy is underlain by metasedimentary rock of the Shoo Fly Complex.[3] Its dominant silica-rich clastic material weathers to a stony coarse soil which includes the well or somewhat excessively drained alluvial fan material (mainly Forgay very gravelly sandy loam) on which most of Quincy's businesses and homes have been built. Cultivated land north of the residential area lies on poorly drained loam, silt loam or fine sandy loam.[4]

East-Quincy has a Mediterranean climate (Köppen Csb) though its inland location and altitude makes it more continental and wetter than usual for this type, with very heavy snowfalls sometimes occurring in winter – the record being 133 inches (337.8 cm) in the very wet January 1916.[5][6] Although summer days are hot and only 1.4 days per winter fail to top 32 °F (0 °C), nights can be very cold and frosts occur on 179 days per year and have been recorded even in July.
