Rancho Palos Verdes Weather & Climate

Southern California along the Pacific Coast enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate with over 300 days of sunshine per year. As with most of the state of California, summers are dry due to a semi-permanent high pressure system that sits in the Pacific Ocean and holds storm tracks well to the north. Warm air moving over the cool ocean in summer creates fog that moves in during the evening and early morning hours but almost always dissipates by midday. The rainy season is November through early April, but this area receives only approximately 12 inches of precipitation per year. Some flash flooding can occur when large amounts of rain occur in winter over a period of one or two days, and in summertime, very dry conditions in the higher elevations means forest fires are always a threat.
