When visiting in San Francisco (even in the summer), you will encounter the fog rolling in from the ocean later in the afternoon. The normal cycle is for the clouds and fog to withdraw offshore in the morning. Later on in the day, the fog will roll back in and many times, blanket the city with ice-cold fingers of wet fog.
The only way to be ready for the possible plunge in temperature is to bring along more clothing. It’s amusing to see people walking around Fisherman’s Wharf in short pants and tank tops, because you just know they will be shocked when the temperature falls suddenly. They’ll soon wish they had a parka and long pants!
This is one of the things that makes San Francisco so special. The change in temperature can be so very dramatic. From my house in the north bay, the temperature is 15 to 25 degrees cooler compared to the city.
Your best bet is to bring along a small backpack with a light jacket and long pants. You’ll want to cover up to stay warm. I’ve had people visit who left the house in the morning to drive into the city for the day. When I see that they don’t even have a jacket with them (because it’s hot outside), I have to convince them to bring along more clothes. When they return, they always thank me for making them take warm clothes. They would have been miserable otherwise.
So remember to prepare well for your visit to San Francisco. You’ll thank me for the advice! And have a great day (and night) in the city by the bay.
