San Francisco Travel Guide

Weather of San Francisco

San Francisco is surrounded on three sides by bodies of water: the Pacific Ocean, the Golden Gate strait, and the San Francisco Bay. The city is laid out in a grid over some 40 hills, reaching heights of nearly 1,000 feet; this sometimes originates wide variations in temperature and sky conditions in different areas of town. The Pacific air keeps the temperatures generally moderate, rarely ranging above 75 degrees or below 45 degrees, leading San Francisco to be named "the air conditioned city." The climate is much seemed to coastal areas on the Mediterranean.

Despite temperatures remain relatively continuous; there are two definite seasons wet and dry with more than 80 percent of annual acceleration taking place between November and March. Perhaps the most distinctive qualities of the local climate are the banks of fog that can roll in off the ocean, instantaneously covering various areas of the city, and then disappear quickly. The fog is most frequent on summer mornings, coming off the cooler ocean and backing up against the hills, but it also comes from the colder inland areas during the winter.
