The weather in San Francisco is mild all year long. Our summers are moderate during the day and average temperatures in the mid-to-upper 60s. It's chilly at night as the fog rolls in.

Being that it rains just a few days each month, so you will often have mostly clear days even in the winter. This time of year is a little cooler with temperatures in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
