Conventional belief is that Southern California doesn’t have seasons, or if it does, there’s a wet and a dry season. That’s it. While not accurate, this perception from those on the East Coast or Northwest may seem true, especially on the California coast.
But in Palm Springs, you can experience a full range of seasons, more varied than that in, say, Los Angeles or San Diego.
Winter: December through February
Winters in Palm Springs are among the mildest in the continental United States, with temperatures ranging from around 40 – 70° F (4.5 – 24°C).
Like the rest of Southern California, winter is the rainy season, but Palm Springs only receives about five inches of rain per year. It’s really hard to call that “rainy.”
It’s the mountains…
