Is the Weather in Los Cabos perfect?
Weather in Los Cabos is what most would consider perfect. Some people feel the summer is a bit too warm. People who live in the desert US southwest consider the weather a bit cool. Those from the US northwest or mountain states will consider it hot. If you're from the US east or south you'll welcome the dry heat. When does it rain in Los Cabos? The answer to that is that the rainy season occurs during the summer months, generally July through October when the tropical fronts are sliding by following the warm water. So far this summer, we have seen very little rain. Normally, there are a few storms during this so called rainy season. However, tropical storms and hurricanes hardly ever hit Cabo directly since they do follow the warm water surrounding the tip of the Baja. There can be rain when a storm passes by, but it never lasts for very long. The climate is arid with over 300 days of sunshine (some weather reports say it is over 350 days). Average annual rainfall is 10 inches (25.4 cm.) most of which occurs during the months of September and October. The average high temperatures range from the mid-70s in winter months to mid-90s in summer months. Spring and Fall high temperatures are in the mid-80s The Pacific Ocean side of Los Cabos is generally 10 degrees cooler than the Sea of Cortez side. San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, though only 26 miles apart, are in two separate climate zones divided by the ridge of mountains which runs parallel to the two coasts. Weather Data that May Interest You: • Average annual rainfall: 10 inches (25.4 cm.) • Coldest weather December and January • Storm season July to October • Average year-round temperature 78 degrees F. (25.5 degrees C.) • Average water temperature (Sea of Cortez) 72 degrees F (22 degrees C.) During the summer months the water temperature can reach the mid80s (28 to 29 degrees C.) Where else in the world will you find a climate that certainly qualifies for perfect? Put that together with no pollution and stunning natural beauty and you will know why we call Los Cabos Paradise.
