Climate in the San Juan Islands
The warm ocean currents reflected off the mountain ranges is what creates the moderate Marine West Coast climate that Western Washington experiences, with no severe highs or lows. However, the weather in this area can change fairly rapidly and is a typically forecast as a 40% chance of something, not reliably predictable. None-the-less, the San Juan Islands are located in the rain shadow of the Olympic mountains and this region is known as the banana belt of the Pacific northwest.
Typical dress in the San Juan Islands consists of layers that include a sleeveless top or tee-shirt, fleece and a rain jacket with sensible shoes that want to travel on rock, grasslands, woodlands and mud. Are you smiling yet?
Well, come and experience it for yourself, have some good fun and breathe the better fresh air the planet has to offer.
