Seems like they grow different fruits there and the weather is like Southern NM where I am now.

Anyone know anything?

Hot summers, nice days in the winter with cold nights. Can be pretty extreme at times but I love the meadows and graze land. Sits next to some pretty rugged foot hills.

Warner Springs a very rural and quiet unincorporated area at the very north-eastern edge of San Diego County. There isn't a lot there -- a small old historic mission church, an indian reservation, a sky diving place, a mobile home park, a couple of wineries, and a resort that has a general store and two restaurants. Residents have to drive to either Escondido or Temecula for shopping and medical services and they're at least a 15-20 minute drive on some pretty windy roads, depending on where in Warner Springs you're starting from.

I think it is a beautiful area with oak groves and lots of rocky hills. It is well inland from coast, so it does get hot in the summer. As I recall, most of Warner Springs doesn't have any city water, so they rely on well water -- which could potentially be an issue with California's ongoing drought. If you're thinking about buying a home out there, investigate well water GPM carefully.

You might find this website gives you more insight into the community out there: North County San Diego Neighborhood Guide: Warner Springs | Your North County

If you like the sound of Warner Springs, but want something a little more convenient, check out Fallbrook and Valley Center, which have areas that still have a semi rural feel but are close to shopping, entertainment, medical services, and the coast.

I've spent many happy times at Warner Springs Ranch Resort and I can tell you that summer is hot - but then I love dry mountain heat. I can't speak for winter first-hand as I've never been up there in winter nor paid attention. It is similar to Julian, which does get some snow. With an altitude of roughly 3100 feet that makes sense.

Crop-wise, I think I'd check with the University of California Cooperative Extension. They can help you out with information regarding USDA climate zones and thus appropriate crops for the climate. Here's a link:

In your other post in the California general forum you mentioned olives and nuts. I can speak to "nuts" somewhat. I now live in the Sacramento Valley where walnuts and almonds are major crops. Almonds and walnuts require lots and lots of water - to the point that "water for almonds" has become very contentious during our drought. So that's something to consider. Olives love a mediterranean climate and I'm not so sure they'd be successful in a place with cold snaps. You'd need to do research for sure.

Here's a link to a weather site where you can search for daily temps for Warner Springs.

Hope that helps a bit. Good luck to you.

We used to go target practicing out there, when Temecula was just a blip on the map. There is a great, peaceful campground called Indian Flats, & the Pacific Crest Trail crosses the area. A protected species of frog is located there. It sometimes gets a dusting of snow on stormy winter days. It's a pleasant rural area not far from urban sprawl.
