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!

please stopping lumping So Cal with No Cal's weather!

Every year you guys lump So Cal, central coast and No Cal together in your predictions and it makes for very inaccurate forecasts. The Calif coast is hundreds of miles long and has very different topography and climates from north to south and west to east thus giving us everything from blazing hot and dry, to heavy snow to rainy and windy or foggy and all on the same day. Thank you!

Central California

There should be another region. Central California ( Santa BarbaraSan Luis Obispo County) has a whole different climate.

San Luis Obispo County

I agree, we need specfic forecast for San Luis Obisp County, in California. We have coastal areas and inland, very different climates.

Change your definition of Pacific SW

TOFA, you may want to change your definition of the Pacific SW. California has two distinct climate types. Southern California has a distinctly different climate from Northern California, which is more similar to the climate experienced by the Pacific NW. It would be far better to have a Northern California zone and a Southern California zone in your forecast rather than lumping them together as the Pacific SW.

Northern California

Middle California and Southern California have very different climates during the winter than Northern California. Starting at the Sutter Buttes and going to the Oregon border, is Northern California. Yes, we get the heat but, the mountains get more snow and the climate is cooler in the winter. Sacramento and the Delta/Bay areas get lots of fog. We are drier. Please don't lump Northern California with the rest of the state-so that we can have more accurate forecasts in the future.

You are wrong

California has four main climate regions and 3 climate zones. The zones are a subtropical climate zone, a hot tropical climate zone which is Southern California, and
the temperate climate zone Which is Northern California. The Climate regions are as follows Northern California, Pacific North West climate, Central Calfornia climate, Southern California climate, Pacific South West Climate. California also has a Mediterranean climate.

Northern & Southern Calif

I totally agree. Our Southern Calif climate is not like that of San Francisco and points farther north. In SoCal, we have a Mediterranean climate, and except for occasional heat during July to Sept, it is very pleasant.

I think your close ...

Southern California does have semi-Mediterranean climate, but in cities that are next to the ocean. Inland temperatures and precipitation typically mirror those of a more arid, desert climate with lower precipitation and colder temperatures in winter and much drier and hotter temperatures in summer. The California area has such varied climates that are not far from one another, it’s interesting to live there, ridiculously expensive yes, but still a great place to live (if you avoid the traffic :) ).
