San Francisco weather in June is warm and sunny. The evening fog keeps SF cool during the summer, so you can enjoy your stay without overheating.
If you plan to visit during this time, you will need to watch the weather forecast for the Bay Area. Most days are cool in June, but we often get a few days of high temperatures during the end of the month.Read on for more information to help you pack and prepare for your upcoming visit to San Francisco. You will also find some great deals for your stay as well as some of my favorite things to do this month.
The picture above is from the Kite Festival every year in the Presidio. It is a great example of the average San Francisco weather in June during the day. Highs are in the mid-60s with some wind. The sun is typically shining every day after the fog burns off around mid-morning.
At night, the temps dip down into the mid-50s. The wind will continue to blow in the evening but tends to settle down a little as the evening wears on.
There is almost no rain this time of year.

So, what should you pack for the San Francisco weather in June? Layers!
The best way to prepare for your visit is to bring along items that you can layer. You will find it's cool in the morning, warmer in the afternoons, and then cool again at night. It's also cooler along the shore than it is in the heart of the city. At times, the temps will vary by up to 5 to 10 degrees by district, so it's good to plan ahead.
I typically wear short sleeved shirts and a light jacket or sweater in June. I wear a jacket or sweater that I can tie around my waist as I'm often taking it on and off as I explore SF.
I almost always wear pants or jeans too. There are a few days toward the end of the month that are hotter, but the wind gives us some natural air conditioning, so shorts are not needed. However, if you love to wear shorts or skirts when it's in the mid-60s, then make sure to bring those along too.
