San Francisco May 2022 Events

Celebrate Memorial Day Weekend in San Fran

Average temperature low and high: 51° - 64°
In May, San Francisco weather stays relatively mild and cool with low humidity. Nearing the beginning of summer, temperatures reach low to mid-60s. Be aware that this is the time of year when the famous San Francisco fog starts to roll in, causing it to still be pretty misty. However, don't let that stop you from exploring the awesome sites and activities that the city has to offer. Some events may be postponed or different this year due to COVID-19, we will do our best to update this page with any new information.
