Climate

The climate of San Francisco is known as a marine climate and is as changeable as the seas that surround the city on three sides. The summer fogs are notorious, rolling in morning and evening to sit below the rust red pillars of the Golden Gate Bridge, but they rarely persist. In general, the city is cool to mild throughout the year, with wet winters and pleasant summers (August to October are normally the warmest months) - although rain, blown in from the Pacific, is never far away, and can be tricky to predict. Temperatures range from the mid 20’s in summer, to single figures in winter.
