Regardless of what you like 3000 hours of sun is not gloomy. Even 1830 hours isn't gloomy.

Sorry but you think Aberdeen is sunny in summer so I wouldn’t listen to you. And you believe 24C to be too hot.

Grade: 22.7% / F-
Normal San Francisco: 28.9% / F-

2017 appears to be a worse than average year in San Francisco. The seven months of the year with no precipitation or nearly no precipitation wrecked the score, which would have been 49.5% if precipitation were distributed evenly (which, in San Fran, ain't gonna happen). Nevertheless, the dry season seems to have been longer than usual.

As a former resident I would bet that lots of locals felt September 2017 was too hot for them. However for me living my much hotter climates since I would welcome it as being nearly perfect. I do remember attending a 49'ners preseason game when they still played at Candlestick in late August that with the wind blowing on off the pacific and the temps in the low 50's felt extremely cold. In fact we left early because of that. Reminded me of the coldest winter, summer in San Francisco line.
I agree, too much winter rain. Would like plentiful rain in the summer.

But, summers are still too mild. Would like a lot more heat. And the summer rain would help to moderate the heat.

Yep, late August nights with the sea breeze, and temps in the low 50s--definitely not great for outdoor evening activities. Very warm summer nights that stay warm all the way to sunrise are the best!

For these reasons, the Gulf Coast and Florida have, IMO, the best summer weather in the states.

Because it is sunny in summer, it has more than 5 hours of sun per day. 24°C is not too hot, its delightful.

Thanks! It's significantly cooler than the original post, just as I expected based on the source. Based on official data, San Francisco 2017 gets a D+

Just one single warm month. Way too rainy during winter. 7-8 months are pleasant, but except for Sep-Oct, it looks like a non-ending early spring with a chilly, way too rainy January.
