Just based on the major metro areas (SF, San Jose, Oakland vs Los Angeles, Santa Ana, San Diego) I picked SoCal after living in SF for 6 years.

ONLY if you like hot weather! If you prefer cooler, yet sunny, weather, stick with NorCal, especially the coastal areas. Or the central coast.

Right because Los Gatos, Campbell in the South Bay, or Danville, San Ramon, Dublin and basically the 680 corridor isn't hot.

Anyway, this debate on weather was already won.

Pleasant means different things to different people, but Norton defines it as a place where the mean temperature is between 55 degrees and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. The maximum daily temperature doesn't go above 85 degrees and the minimum doesn't dip below 45 degrees. Norton also considered precipitation. Days with greater than .010 inches of precipitation or greater than .1 inches of snow were not viewed as pleasant, Norton told Business Insider through email.
The 5 most pleasant places:

Los Angeles — 183 days/year

San Diego— 182 days/year

Oxnard — 166 days/year

Simi Valley — 156 days/year


San Francisco — 153 days/year

Norcal, all around. LA, if you are rich and don't care about the job market (which is very poor at the moment, with unemployment at 9-10%).

Orange counties unemployment rate was 5.2 % in January.

For comparison, Santa Clara County, home of Silicon Valley, hovered at 5.8% during the same time.

Also LA metro is closer to 7%, not 10% according to BLS which includes areas like Lancaster and Palmdale.
