Typical weather in San Francisco is temperate and mild, ranging from 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter and anywhere from 60-75 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer. The famous San Francisco fog is often referred to as the city’s “natural air conditioner” and has been known to produce dips in temperatures. It is also common for the temperature to change from neighborhood to neighborhood, and even from one block to the next. Generally speaking, the location of the NHI San Francisco campus sees more sun and warmth than some of the other areas of the city.
