We are relocating to San Francisco from Phoenix, and I have terrible osteo-arthritis. My husband will be working in the Financial District. I know there are many climates within the Bay Area, and I want to know where the arthritis sufferers live. We're looking for an area that would be lower humidity, warm, and with as few changes in barometric pressure as possible.

He would like to be able to get to work in thirty minutes or less walking or on mass transit. We would like to live somewhere safe. We're looking to spend as much as $2,000/month and we'll settle for a one bedroom, but we'd prefer two if possible. We have a beagle and a cat.

Any suggestions?

I have arthritis, and live in the southeast corner of San Francisco... not the most desirable part of town generally, but we do have nice weather. Potrero Hill and Noe Valley are known to be nice and sunny, without the heavy fog which brings humidity. Western San Francisco (Sunset District, Richmond, etc.) is the foggiest area, so you might avoid that if moist weather aggravates you. However, the whole city does have frequent & sometimes dramatic weather changes - so maybe the warmer East Bay would be more suitable for you. Perhaps the Walnut Creek or Pleasanton area, if that's not too far of a commute? Good luck!

Oh, and the mid-Peninsula (south of Burlingame-ish) also has nice warm weather... a little cooler than the East Bay, but much more stable than the city.

Do you want closer to Phoenix whether? Closer to the heart of the Bay, whether SF or the peninsula or Berkeley/Oakland or San Leandro will be milder weather, hardly ever really hot, milder winters and milder summers, less temp fluctuation, more fog.

East Bay on the other side of the hills from Oakland-Berkeley, you will find lower lows in the winter (as low as 30F most winters, sometimes colder) and higher highs (probable summer highs around 85-90, and sometimes closer to 100 or even 110).

Don't know about the pressure, don't really follow that. Perhaps you could check WeatherUnderground for pressure history of areas you are considering.

I live in South San Francisco, and I keep a barometer on my piano because it was very expensive and I want it to last.. humidity ranges from 50-70% around here, and it's normally mild and overcast. If you want lots of sun, you should move out towards Castro Valley or Pleasanton.
