Nipomo Weather & Climate

A Mild, Mediterranean climate describes the central coast of California that lies between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The area near San Luis Obispo and Pismo Beach enjoys over 300 days of sunshine per year and very pleasant temperatures year round. The terrain is made up of sandy beaches, gently rolling hills and sand dunes, lush foliage and vineyards. Cool ocean breezes keep temperatures from becoming too hot in the summertime. Low clouds and patchy fog are common on summer days, but it almost always burns off by midday. Conditions are very dry, and the occasional summer thunderstorm produces so little precipitation that range and forest fires often result from lightening strikes. In winter, the semi-permanent Pacific Ocean high retreats bringing rain into the area from November through March. These storms are widespread and at times heavy.
