About the N. CA & Inland Valleys Region
The Northern California Coast and Inland Valleys region includes Mendocino and inland through the Sacramento Valley up to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The region follows the Central Valley south to Bakersfield, and heads west to the coast at Point Conception. Inland, the climate is dry and mountainous. On the coast, the cool days and nights throughout the year make fog a concern. Summers are dry and winters are wet on the coast. This region includes “America’s Salad Bowl,” the Salinas Valley, one of the most productive agricultural regions in the country. The growing season lasts from mid-February to late November. Temperatures range from lows around 20 degrees Fahrenheit in winter to temps in excess of 100 degrees Fahrenheit in the desert summer.
