Hi everyone. I don´t feel right asking this question but I do anything for my dear cousing.

"Can anyone tell me please what city or town in Spain has a San Francisco style weather or Los Angeles style weather? Not humid, dry summer, not too cold in winters and not too hot in summers." (That doesn´t sound right)

I´m just copying and pasting from an E-mail my cousing who lives in San Francisco sent me.

Sorry about that and do your best if you could

Thanks

Not knowing exactly how it is in San Francisco, I can only say that possibly the best climate would be the Canary Islands. They tend to have warmer winters and more pleasant summers. Mainland Spain is more extreme, with very hot, humid summers and cold, wet and windy winters, That said, the winter just gone has been quite pleasant

Having been in San Francisco relatively recently I cant think of anywhere in Spain that is sometimes hot, sometimes cold, and often foggy. Certainly in the CB North it can be humid, it was 77 yesterday and is down to 60 right now in bright sunshine

You are describing the Canary Islands climate, very similar to Southern California, but on the same latitude as northern Florida. I think we are still part of Spain:D

The posters on here who live there may tell you better, but as far as I know Madrid is unbearably hot in the summer and cold in the winter - its to do with altitude I believe??!

o.k. Just a little info. I think I´ve been here in Panama too long, but humid for me is like 7 months in the year humid. For example right now at 11:34 a.m. Panama time is

Temp - 32
Feels like - 44
Humidity - 83%

Source (Weather Forecast: Panamá City, Panama - The Weather Network)

And to be honest with you it feels hotter than that. So when you say humid. How many months humid by the way?

Thanks

I have been through the Panama Canal, the climate here in the Canary Islands is a lot more agreeable

I have been in very few places in Spain, but I spend a lot of time looking at the weather. I would think that Spain's north coast would be closest to San Francisco. Weather.com has a way of comparing two cities, here is Bilbao and San Francisco...

Awesome link. I do too look at the weather a lot.

"xabiachica" here is the link for the comparison between SF and Madrid

It cannot find where I live, but that in itself is not unusual.

I never realised that San Francisco was so cold Brrrrr. I am sure last time I was there it was not that cold.
