We've been mostly in the 60s in SD this winter -- right where we should be -- with a handful of days in the 50s or 70s. Yesterday was in the low 70s at our house, and it will be again today. We sat by the pool and were loving it. In a week, we'll have some rain again and 50s. It's a perfect mix. Get a little NorCal weather and a little Baja weather switching off. I always tell people that you don't need to vacation in winter down here -- just stay put, be patient, and eventually the vacation will come to you for a few days at a time. I will say that coastal highs were ten degrees cooler than in my neighborhood, bc the ocean in cold right now at 57f water temp, and anything coming off the water will be chilly

This year's a good mix. Last year was way too wet and cold, with no warm days for months. Worst I ever saw. The drought years, though, seemed like they were always warm, and I remember being above average for like eighteen months straight, almost every single day. It was freaky and bad for nature. This winter is just right. I still love the chilly nights as long as I get a few hours of warmth in the middle of the day.

Interesting that the tule fog is back in Sacramento this year. I don't think it's been making it through the Carquinez Strait into my parents' neck of the woods in Walnut Creek. I tend to think the inland East Bay is the sweet spot that's just far enough to escape most of the marine layer from the bay AND the ground fog from the valley, most of the time. But it's very cozy to be socked in.

You know, know that I think back, I remember some of the warmest days of my law school career in SF being in January. In the late 90s, we always seemed to get a week of 70s right after returning back from winter break, and without AC, it was hot in the lecture Halls. We would study outdoors. It isn't the norm for SF, but it does happen maybe a couple times a decade.

We took the Capitol Corridor train to San Francisco today to attend a 49er party at a friends. Fog was present in Downtown Sacramento as we left for the Bay. It didn't really clear up until going through the Berkeley area, but the Bay was overcast, cloudy and cold all day.

The train was packed with mostly 49er fans. After Davis the train was completely full, and standing room only for those getting on at Vacaville. Eleven (5-car) trains to the Bay today, and they added an extra (10-car) train making it 12 trains to the Bay today. Everyone was festive and on their best behavior. When we left Sacramento folks were pulling out beers and by the time we got off the train in Emeryville the volume and party atmosphere had gone up several decibels, so I'm sure by the time the train got to Santa Clara folks were already drunk! On the way back, everyone was on their best behavior except two guys who were escorted off the train at Berkeley for being drunk.

Although no fog over the bay, it was very cloudy and chilly throughout the day in San Francisco. We hit a few sports bars on the way to the party catching the Chiefs/Titans game, hot apple cinder with bourbon seemed to be the popular drink of the day

Yeah, I heard the LA forecast yesterday on satellite radio while driving in San Diego, and I was surprised it was a good 10 degrees warmer up there. In the summer, that's typical, but not so much in the winter.

Yep, LA, especially downtown LA towards the east is usually at least 5 degrees warmer than most of SD.


Overall, a Sacramento winter is near identical to a Bay Area city, but Sacramento is more likely than the Bay Area to have Portland-like days of cloudy, cold, wet and damp, and more likely than the Bay to have LA-like days of mild-warm, dry and Sunny.

This will be a drought year, no rain in January, very very unusual. Unless, we have a March Miracle of record rain to catch us up.
