Climate in L.A., San Francisco and Chicago

I'm thinking of travelling to one of these cities (L.A., San Francisco or Chicago)next july. However, I hate hot climate in my travels. Where could I have the best stay? How hot it would be in each one (in Celsius degrees)? I must let you know that I live in Brazil.

Hi--try this site as a jumping off point. http://www.weatherbase.com/

I grew up in Chicago which can be miserably hot and humid, altho not necessaarily. Your best bet is to look at the averages for each place on the above site and then play the percentages...good luck.

Isn't San Ferancisco nearly always on the cool/foggy side? Tho with the impact climate change is having, it's all pretty hard to call. Chicago, as the above poster indicated, can be absolutely miserable when it is hot/humid. Or,...gorgeous when it's not. But in July??? I wouldn't risk it. And a typically hot summer day in Chicago could run anywhere from 26 to 32 celsius.

They're all great World Cities and very different. San Francisco will undoubtedly have the coolest July of the three. Los Angeles, like all of California, is comprised of hundreds of microclimates. The coast is consistently cooler than inland, but there are variations even there (Long Beach is consistently 5 degrees hotter than Santa Monica); and downtown LA will be 5-10 degrees hotter than the coast, but 5 degrees cooler than in the San Fernando or San Gabriel Valley.

Chicago will probably be hotter than the California cities, and definitely more humid than LA (which is, after all, in a coastal desert). But don't let that deter you-- it's a truly great city.

My picks for your request would be:
San Francisco
Los Angeles
Chicago
(in that order of preference)

Lived in California all my life--mainly north--Agree with" Suze"
san Francisco can be" trickey" in July--occassionally 3-5 day stretch of HOT --90s (F) but not humid...
If L.A. has a hot spell then the air quality gets really bad but even then only mildly humid. I have been in Chicago twice in August (meetings) --almost died from heat and humidity.
Just a personal opinion----

Stay away from Chicago in July. It can be great, but if you happen to catch one of their heat waves, it can also be misery.

San Fran is likely nice every July. Just know that one of the things you'll likely do will be to take a day-trip to Napa. That will be hot. But not the way Chicago is.
