I'm considering moving to Humbolt County, probably the Arcata area. Outdoor exercise is extremely important to me. Where I currently live it is very windy (20mph+ with 30-50mph gusts), and instead of walking, hiking or snowshoeing every day, I'm lucky to get outside 2-3 times a week.

How much of the precipitation for Humbolt county is fog and how much is rain? Does it rain almost every day in autumn, winter and spring? Is the autumn through spring weather similar to Olympia WA or Sandpoint ID. I have no problems recreating in light to moderate rain if there's no wind.

Also, how windy is the area? Are there many days where the wind is calm?

Last, do the climate graphs for towns in Humbolt county on city-data.com reflect current weather patterns and temperatures? If not, what is different now? How hot are summer days?

Thanks,

One of our posters from Del Norte county posted this week that there are windstorms going on. I don't know if that's typical spring weather, or what. We do have a resident of Humboldt Bay who posts here occasionally, so hopefully he'll see your thread, and will contribute. He's said that in the last year or two the climate has warmed a little, and is a little less rainy, though the water supply's ok. Summers are getting drier, as they are throughout the Pacific Northwest.

OP, you may wish to ask the moderator to move this post to the general CA forum. Humboldt County is 250+ miles from the San Francisco/Oakland region. You may get more "hits" for advice in the general forum.

Your question is impossible to answer because weather forecasting is not an exact science. I've been rained on this past year more than the past 20 years together. Who knows what next year will be like? Rain is just part of the deal up here. Sorry I can't quantify it for you.
BTW it's spelled "Humboldt".

Thanks for your responses. I've reposted on the California forum. I'll be watching both forums.
