Default Danville/San Ramon: How's the wind?

I've read that the Tri-Valley area can get a bit windy and wanted to know which parts of the cities are more windy than the rest.

We're not particularly fond of wind and wanted to see the best areas with lowest winds.


Thanks!

It's pretty even coverage across the area. Find a day with low wind scheduled. Bay Area winds tend to pick up in the mid-late afternoon in general. So it's not so much a question of the best areas but the best time to see the area. So between 2-6PM is when it picks up most. This is not counting any storms of course, just regular days.

Up near the Blackhawk/Diablo side of Danville there is very little wind (that we have noticed.) I wonder if it is at all to do with living right at the base of Mt. Diablo.

We leave our huge picnic umbrella up pretty much all the time, and have only had it blow over once (during a storm.) I wouldn't say the wind is ever "whipping up" in our neck of the woods.

I have found that Dublin is fairly windy as is San Ramon. Danville is relatively calm in comparison.

No wind in most of Danville, as far as I know. I live there, never had to worry about toys, umbrellas, etc.

Is Livermore windy? How about Pleasanton?

We're coming from So Cal, so we're used to the Santa Ana's on occasion .... but just curious, as we'll be there in a few weeks.

HUGz! Jules

The wind is mostly over the hill in Tracy. There's some wind in Livermore but you're not going to get blown down or anything lol.

We live in a really niche area that rarely gets the winds. My neighbors told me so!

The first year I lost my table and an umbrella, as well as the pool floats .... they all went somewhere where no neighbors could even find them.

The next year I lost the same!

I then went and bought really heavy outdoor furniture and learned that yes, we do rarely get the winds like other areas. So, I got smart!

My question is, is the Livermore area and beyond just occasionally windy, like just regular winds ....or winds like the Santa Ana's ....where they might not pick 'you' up .... But you might find yourself missing a few outdoor items after a wind event?

HUGz! Jules

I think Livemore is super windy. Especially during the evenings and mornings. Just my anecdotal impressions of the area.

I went to Las Positas college for a couple of years before transferring and never really noticed the winds in Livermore. I mean sure, if we studied outside we couldn't have loose papers without them blowing away but it wasn't like we were gonna end up in Oz.

I THINK weatherbug and other sites usually store data so you could check out different stations to get an idea of the conditions. I like weatherbug because there are usually a lot of locations in an area to get data from.
