    San Francisco is warmer in the summer, as would be expected. Bear in mind that Alaska is warmer in the summer, too. Good thing your teacher teaches English and not science. Average high in January is 57.9 F. The average high in July is 68.2. Clearly the summer is warmer. But the warmest time of year is actually late summer/early fall, or August through October.

    It's humid, but not in the way someone in the Midwest, East Coast, etc... would think of as "humid". Keep in mind humidity's really just a matter of moisture in the air - San Francisco's humidity isn't due to some vague water/air ratio (where the humidity is completely unseen), but rather due to fog, etc... Likewise, due to winds from the ocean and bay, it doesn't really "linger" like in other places. And yeah, since it rarely gets hot, it's not as noticeable (note: in cities like Chicago, no one complains about the humidity during Spring when it's in the 50s and 60s... but in the summer, in the 80s and 90s+, it becomes an issue).

    September is usually pretty warm, but if you're coming here, be ready for anything. San Francisco is a coastal city, which means the weather is changeable. Always bring long pants, a jacket and a sweater because no matter what the season, it tends to be cool and breezy here. It can get quite chilly at night, too, even in the summer. San Francisco has a lot of microclimates, which means it can be cold and foggy in one part of the city and sunny and warm in another neighborhood. The western half of the city tends to be foggiest because it's nearer to the Pacific Ocean. We can always tell who the tourists are in the summertime. They're the ones who are shivering in their T-shirts, shorts and flip-flops. ;-) Yes, it does get hot here, but not very often and it doesn't last long, two or three days at most. Eventually the warm inland temperatures will suck the cold, moist weather on the ocean into the Bay through the Golden Gate. This means during much of the summer, the City is blanketed in fog.

    So it's because of the ocean "The western half of the city tends to be foggiest because it's nearer to the Pacific Ocean." thanks for your research Sophiaaaa
