Porterville summers are dry with peak temparatures regularly above 35 deg C in January and February.  The mercury rises above 45 deg C at least a few times during the year.

Late afternoons in summer are gererally unflyably windy as the area is affected by a northerly and a southerly sea-breeze.

Winters are mild with enough rain to support wheat and conola farming without any additional irrigation.

Winter flying is infrequent due to the regular passage of fronts as well as a very stable inversion that often sits at or below take-off.  Ideal conditions for students.

Best flying months are November to March.  Blue flying is very common.
