Jeff. you need to move. The

Jeff. you need to move. The big body of water that surrounds SF, provides you with the weather you apparently DON'T like. Move to the mountains of the west and you can get the weather you want. Do you know how many would die if there was a blizzard in SF? What it would do to the city and you? Be careful what you wish for. I just hope I don't get 9 inches of rain in the high desert in 30 hours again this year. But it isn't the record either.

Fed Up With Interminable Summer!

I agree with many of the comments here. I rarely post about things like this, and I understand there's nothing we Californians can do about it, but I am so unbelievably FED UP with these sickening temperature swings in San Francisco (and in California in general). Just when you think it's over after a day or two of 62 degrees, the next day is 71, then 74, then 76, down to 59 for a day, then right back up to 68-69 again....in NOVEMBER!!!! ENOUGH. This is after months of temp spikes into the 90s! Why does CA experience 8 months of summer?!?! Even April was warm. October was actually worse than Sept was this year in terms of heat wave frequency. We'd have 3-5 days of nothing but increasing temperatures from 68 to 94 and it almost never dropped below a sickening 70 with 85% humidity. Not quite as humid anymore, but I'm STILL seeing mosquitoes! In November! This week, we're getting gross tule fog, you know the kind that typically socks the coast in after a bad summer heatwave. We shouldn't be getting steamy tule fog in November. Where is that high, thick, grey, freezing stuff that holds in all the frigid temps in the low 50s? My family thinks I'm nuts for keeping my screened windows wide open at night this time of year. It's freaking HOT compared to the way it SHOULD be and there's no wind, either. I spend most of the year in jeans and t-shirts, even in "winter". It's rarely cold enough to even wear a long-sleeve jersey outside anymore. Add to that the devastation caused by the annual apocalyptic fires from the Santa Ana winds, which unfortunately we're now famous for, and it's a recipe for a revolting fall. We don't even have "fall" or so-called season changes anymore. Our seasons basically range from spring to official summer, late summer, Indian summer, very late summer, pre-holiday summer, and then maybe a month or two of mild temperatures around the holidays with rain if we're lucky. I am so tired of seeing our state in brick red and bright orange colors on every single map while the rest of the country is blue and dark blue by now. We need blizzards and real cold for a change, and I'm talking temps in the 20s and 30s. That would be considered practically a record low for CA, but a "heatwave" in places like New York this time of year. I don't want to see a day over 55 degrees for at least 4 months. I also detest that stupid jet stream. That thing ALWAYS "humps" right over CA perfectly so those repulsive high-pressure systems can fester over the coast for days at a time, while the rest of the country is getting arctic blasts. I'm not saying I want Day After Tomorrow to hit, but why can't we just have some kind of season change like other states? Even Oregon experiences more season changes than we do and we're just one state south.

Sick of California weather

Im a cali native. Grew up in Orange County and moved to the central coast in 1994. This area is staying consistently warm. Im SO done with the crappy warm weather. I would love cooker temps where it actually feels like Fall and Winter! I want rain and cold temps! Even snow!

***COOLER TEMPS*** not cooker

***COOLER TEMPS*** not cooker. Ugh


No one from California calls it Cali.


Us Californians are dying of all this heat, is any rain or cold coming soon?? I work for a doctor skincare and I am seeing more and more patients walk in with skin cancer, this is becoming a major issue, I'd advise to everyone who lives in California to not go outside until there is no more heat.

Nor-Cal vs.So.Cal

I agree with most that living in N.california(Chico/Red Bluff) our weather is very different from S.California.It would be nice to get separate zone forecasts.

I agree. It needs to be

I agree. It needs to be updated for SoCal

Farmers Almanac Zones

I may be mistaken, but this zone SW has nothing to do with modern weather predictions.The Farmers Almanac has been predicting or fore casting based on the moon cycles for 100 years + or - My Grandfather born in 1907 died in 1993 followed this for planting schedules. I have continued to read it just because! I also measure the rain & temperatures as he did, just because.
I have found this to be fairly accurate.

Stop Whining!

They say that weather predictions beyond 10 days out are correct only 50% of the time. So, stop whining that SoCal is different than Nor
Cal. Beyond 10 days out, it's only for entertainment's sake. If you want an accurate 10-day forecast, go to NOAA.gov . . . and stop whining!
