Climate[eedit | eedit soorce]

San José del Cabo, like amaist aw o Baja California, haes an arid climate (Köppen BWh) although it does receive mair rainfaw than maist auries further north due tae tropical cyclones occasionally comin in frae the sooth an bringin vera hivy faws such as 340 millimetres (13.4 in) on the first o September 1998 an 316 millimetres (12.4 in) on 3 November 1993. Oweraw, housomeivver, rainfaw is some o the mist erratic onywhaur in the warld due tae this influence, an mony years pass bi athoot significant faws at aw.

Due tae the coastline being entirely exposed tae the Paceefic Ocean, the watter temperatur niver reaches the same heichs as in the state caipital La Paz. The average yearly watter temperatur is aboot 72 °F (22 °C), wi laws o 64-68 °F (18-20 °C) in winter, an heichs o 73-79 °F (23-26 °C) durin the simmer months.[3]
