We know the question on your mind, fellow San Joseans — when’s it going to get consistently hot again? Thanks to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center, we know what temperatures and precipitation trends to expect in our city for June, July, and August.
While exact weather conditions typically can’t be predicted more than a week in advance, here’s a seasonal outlook to help you prepare for what summer will bring.
Reminder: The first day of summer is on Wednesday, June 21.
Think hot. This summer, San Jose has a 33-40% chance of temperatures being higher than normal.
Expect slight precipitation. While trends point to a typical amount rainfall for SJ, there’s a 60% likelihood that an El Niño will begin this month — bringing light rain and a bit of humidity to the Bay Area.
Usually in San Jose, June is the beginning of our region’s warm weather, as the average high of 70.5°F in May heats up to a toasty average high of 78.4°F and a low of 53.2°F this month.
In July, it heats up even more. As the warmest month, you can expect an average high of 82°F and a low of 55.2°F. Lucky for us, and maybe your hair, this month brings the least humidity. Stay cool.
