San Francisco Bay Area Weather

The area around Foothill has a comfortable and temperate climate. Unlike the city of San Francisco to the north, the Silicon Valley boasts 300 days of sunshine per year and average temperatures of 21° C.
The varied geography and climates of Northern California invite residents to enjoy the Monterey, Carmel and Half Moon Bay coasts, with some of the best surfing, golfing and sightseeing in the country, and mountain sports within easy driving distance.
Mild temperatures in the western foothills surrounding the campus provide a pleasant year-round climate.
Enjoy a truly Californian lifestyle!
