The climate of San Francisco is as changeable as the seas that surround the city on three sides. The summer fogs are notorious and slow to shift - sitting below the rust red pillars of the Golden Gate Bridge. In general, the city is cool to mild throughout the year, with wet winters and pleasant summers - although rain, blown in from the Pacific, is never far away, and tricky to predict. Temperatures range from the mid 20’s in summer, to single figures in winter.
