Fresno, California

Weather Chart:

The highest temperature for the week I tracked (February 32-March 1) was 67, the lowest temperature was 38. The winds blew at a high of 7 miles and hour and a low of 1 mile an hour and the wind blew from east, then the north, then the west. There was little precipitation on the two days it rained, and way less than an inch (.46 in. and .02 in.). The highest humidity percent was 72% and the lowest was 61%.


The general climate during this time of year, end of winter, would be warmer during the day, upper 60's low 70's, and at night it usually cools down to mid or low 40's. The latitude of Fresno is 36.7500 degrees North and 119.7667 degrees west, and it's almost in the middle of the equator and the pole. The prevailing winds are somewhere between 1016 and 1020 from WNW, this means it's fairly sunny and doesn't get very much rain. Fresno is the largest inland city in California and is known for agriculture. California doesn't get hurricanes or tornadoes, it's earthquakes that occur in that area frequently. Not very close to any mountains, but Fresno is a few hours away from the coast. If Fresno moved towards the Pacific Ocean, it would be cooler and windier. I don't think moving away from the Pacific ocean would affect Fresno very much, the average temperature might go up or down a degree or two, but nothing too drastic.
