actually fairly typical for much the west coast especially if there are coastal fog and winds---the immediate coast cool and cloudy and just a few miles inland hot and sunny. remember that Mark Twain supposedly said that the coldest winter he ever experienced was a San Francisco "summer".
the upper southern oregon coast
USDA zone 9a (Sunset zone 5)
DRY cool summers and WET cool winters
grow eucalyptus, banksias, telopeas, grevilleas, bottlebrush, mexican pines and oaks
