Warmer and Sunnier than the other Bay Area cities.

An A, on the presumption that the sunshine average would be pretty high.

I think San Rafael is the best of the Bay Area climates, and possibly the US. Warm enough to have a decent summer, winters still mild, and sufficient precipitation to make up for the dry summers and give real weather.

You should get "green" look for much of the year, with some of the arid brown look for variation. San Jose is almost semi-arid. No thanks.

Great weather all year long. We have four seasons here. No snow. Not too hot in the summer.

C- November through April would make a nice summer, but the rest is warmer than I prefer. Still not terribly hot normally, which is the only thing saving it from a D or less. And I'm guessing it's waaay too sunny for me, too.

I think you would like San Jose a lot.

While West Coast climates much above San Francisco quickly get cooler and cloudier…you would be surprised how warm areas are just to the south and inland a bit. San Jose gets a really nice warm summer, no real winter, few frosts, and has a lot of subtropical foliage. While it’s not really short/T-shirt weather in winter the way Gold Coast or Miami is in winter, winter is a short season in Mediterranean San Jose. Also, sunshine lovers like you and I would find all the sun one could reasonably ever want.

Mainly loses points for the sunshine and warmer than ideal summers. But at least they're not humid. Overall, not bad.

It does look very appealing, for sure.

Sounds like a B-.

Winter is too cool, and so are nights, including summer ones.
The rest is nice though
