The climate of San Francisco is strongly influenced by the cool current of the Pacific Ocean, which produces a remarkably mild climate with few seasonal temperature variations, earning San Francisco the name "the air-conditioned city." Heavy smog can quickly blanket the city for several hours and then disappear as fast as it arrived. While the smog can interfere with traffic flow and line of sight, it is also the key ingredient for San Francisco's spectacular sunsets.

The months from May to September comprise the warmest and driest period and the rainy season lasts from December to February. Travelers should plan their San Francisco visit during late summer and early fall to enjoy the city's warmest and sunniest weather.
