The beaches of SOUTH Florida do, but northern Florida is much colder in winter and is not beach weather at all.

10 to 20 inches of rainfall a year is not a desert. It just so happens to rain only during winter but when it does rain it can pour heavily and fill up the reservoirs. Those "santa ana" wind-induced wildfires each autumn are natural in Mediterranean climates and burn the chaparral which needs these periodic fires to rejuvenate new growth. Population spread into the foothills means people may lose their home during these fires; that's the risk that goes with living in California. Just like tornadoes and hurricanes destroy homes in the Midwest and South\ East Coast. It hasn't rained since March and won't rain again until sometime in November; that's the typical dry season in California.

San Diego or somewhere in New Mexico. Low humidity and nothing extreme. Yes, it can get cold in New Mexico, but nothing like Montana or North Dakota.

Yes, the rain season is essentially limited to winter and some winters get very little rainfall. Occasionally summer thunderstorms develop in the mountains and can spread out over the basin but it is a rare summer if any rain falls in all coastal regions [San Diego, LA, San Francisco, etc]. On average it rains less than 30 days a year and becomes big news when it does.

JUN: 77/59
JUL: 80/60
AUG: 75/57
SEP: 70/52
OCT: 65/49
NOV: 60/44
DEC: 55/41

OR

JAN: 66/52
FEB: 68/54
MAR: 70/54
