Weather In San Francisco

Opposite to what one would think, the summer months are the coldest and dampest in San Francisco, with temperatures barely topping 70 degrees F (21C) due to the fog and breeze that rolls in off the bay. Once September comes, the temperatures rise and the sun comes out, but you’ll still welcome a jacket in the evening.
