Is it humid or dry?
I saw on wiki that in July the average high was 95 and the average low was 55
Thats a huge difference!
So for the majority of the day is the weather nice?

Well, if you follow the Wikipedia weather chart to its footnote and the corresponding link, you'll see a July average high/low spread of 89F/59F for Claremont.

claremont does back up to the san gabriel mountains, so the summer low does not surprise me. as for humidity, nowhere in CA gets very humid. some people say the coast gets humid, but it's all relative. inland areas like claremont are not very humid at all, so the coast will feel humid compared to this, but it's nothing like the east coast or the south. so anyways, if you think you can handle dry 100+ degree heat for a couple of months, claremont may be a good fit for you.

That large spread (40 degrees) between daytime and night temps is a function of a warm, DRY climate.

Take Miami, FLA for instance: summer time highs are about 90 and the lows about 75....only a 15 degree difference.

So yes, the evenings and mornings in Claremont are quite pleasant in summer. Even in the middle of the day, the shade makes a big DIFFERENCE b/c it's dry. In a place like Miami the humidity in summer basically means there is NO RELIEF 24/7.

Claremont is inland so will be quite a bit warmer than the west side or even Los Angeles proper, but it won't be humid at all. Well not humid compared to the east coast, the beach areas or the south and midwest. The temp spread is what makes living in So Ca in the summer so bearable. The nights can be cool and wonderful.

Agree with everyone that eastern Los Angeles county isn't that bad compared to areas further inland [desert or Central Valley]. The only negative thing about the climate is that strong "santa ana" wind occurs each autumn with dust and really hot temps.

Just to clarify - "mornings are pleasant" means it doesn't get really hot until 8:00 or 9:00.

sorry, I would totally disagree with you. It doesn't get hot until closer to noon or so, of course I guess that depends on what you consider hot and where you live now.

I live somewhere much hotter now - I'd love to have California May and June mornings. I agree with you, though, that it depends on what you consider hot. It also depends on your activities.

I agree. It was 88 degrees in Claremont at 2 pm today and the humidity was 15%. And we're having unseasonably hot weather in So CA this weekend.
