San Mateo Weather & Climate

The peninsula located approximately twenty miles south of San Francisco enjoys a mild year round climate. There is a range in temperature of only approximately 15-20 degrees from summer and winter, with lots of sunshine during the day and cool temperatures at night. This year round vacation destination is greatly influenced by the Pacific Ocean. Cool ocean breezes help moderate the temperatures in summer and a thick marine layer means early morning clouds and fog that dissipates as it moves inland by noontime. Approximately 18 inches of rainfall is received per year during the months of October through early April. Temperatures are cool enough at night in the wintertime for a cozy fire in the fireplace, but it rarely freezes or goes below the 40-degree mark. Flooding or mudslides are sometimes a problem when lots of rain is received during a short period of time.
