The Mediterranean California Climate

One of my favorite things about living in Southern California is the temperate climate. Sure temperate could be cold, but we have a lovely average of 75 F.

A bit of trivia: All of the beautiful Southern California weather is thanks to its Mediterranean climate. While the largest area of similar climate surrounds the Mediterranean sea, Southern California is the only Mediterranean climate within the U.S.

There is precious little of the perfection that is the Mediterranean climate and this is one of many things that make SoCal so special. But we shouldn't get too excited about signs of Spring in January. We are in the thick of what is considered the rainy season, which runs from November through April.

That's ok though, because today there are clear blue skies and 70 F highs.
