One of the greatest draws to Eureka and coastal Humboldt County is the mild weather. Because of the consistancy of the oceans temperature it serves as a cooler in the summer and a heater in the winter. Average temperatures range from the low 40’s to high 60’s most of the year. That is a welcome change to the 100 degree plus temperatures’ borne by our neighbors to the east and south. But don’t worry, it you need your hot fix, eastern Humboldt County provides snow covered mountains and rivers to cool off in the hot inland temperatures.
