Hello, I live in Central California, in what would naturally be a desert, if there was no aquaduct.
Summer temperatures here can reach 110 degrees F. for the months of June until September. Believe me anything over 100 F. is just HOT.
I prefer the relative cold of winter, it can get to about 32 F. at night in winter but normally hoversaround the 40 degree level.
Daytime temperatures are often in the upper 50's-low 60's F. So Winter is much nicer.
