When is is not cloudy in SF

(1/3) > >>

roadman65:
I was wondering when is the time to actually see San Francisco in the Sunlight?  I went in July of 2021 and it was cloudy with a fog covering the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge.  Yet on Full House all the opening sequence of the GG Bridge show blue skies and clear above it all.

Is there a season when to go to not see fog?

Also are there days where the temperatures rise into the 70ís at all?

Max Rockatansky:
Best bet is the summer time.  Youíre still likely to have significant fog during the summer months until late in the day.  Usually 70F is about hot as it gets in the summer but there have been numerous times it has been in the 80s when Iíve visited during summer months.

I visited San Fran in June and recall it being mostly sunny. One year that area had really poor air quality because of the fires, but I thought that was 2020, not 21.

Really the poor air quality is a thing at some point every summer.  My observation is that the bigger fires tend to happen later in the summer when the areas just inland from the coast have had a chance to dry out fully.

Best bet for sustained sun is when the wind shifts around and comes from the north / onshore, which is more likely outside of the summer. Summer tends to pull the marine layer from the ocean towards the heat inland - but usually it does burn off during the day before coming back in for the evening.

The real answer is to stay on the east side of the city and look at the Bay Bridge instead!

It was in the 70's earlier this week - we get scattered warm days throughout the year, and they actually seem less likely in the summer, and much more likely in the fall, well into October.
