I am scheduled to move to the Indio/Palm Desert area next year from the SF Bay area. I can't wait since I hate Bay area weather. I know these communities are near the Mojave Desert and I love the heat. I checked out the average temperatures of these towns on this website and was shocked to see that the average temperature of these areas is around 70 degrees in the winter. Is it actually that warm in the winter down there or is this just an exaggeration?

Not an exaggeration at all.
I can recall several times I've run the AC on Christmas.
But it can still get very very chilly after the sun goes down.

Heck, it's even in the 80's during winter here a lot of times.

Average means - maybe 50 at night - 80 during the day - but it does get pretty cool as in coat weather and your blood thins a little so it seems colder than it is. What do you hate about the Bay Area weather because I lived there for 20 years so I could do a pretty accurate comparison

Hey LivingintheDesert,

I hate what I'm seeing now. It's been in the mid-40's for the last month and there is NO sunshine at all. I live in Walnut Creek, and since you lived in the Bay Area for 20 years, you know where that is. And you know how cold it gets during the fall and winter. I guess what I'm saying is that I'd love to live in an area in California that is warm all year round because I love the heat. And since I'm scheduled to move to Riverside Co. (assuming the recession doesn't worsen) to accept a new job anyways, I thought I'd inquire about the weather.

I was in San Jose for 3 weeks, Dec. 18-Jan 9 and it was in the 60's the whole time with plenty of sunshine. I guess Walnut Creek is different....

Winters are nice but short lived. In winter, it can get down to 30`s for a low. It kind of surprised me.

It is funny because weather in the bay area is generally thought of as some of the best in the world. Sunset zone is similar to that of the mediteranean - but since I have been back it has seemed too cold to me as well. I love the heat of the desert. The 120 doesn't bother me because I just go out in the evening and enjoy the bbq and pool. Lots of blue skys and sunshine here if you love the heat - as I do - you will love it!
