Albany has a Mediterranean climate (Köppen Csb) with dry, warm summers, cool, wet winters, and pleasant springs and autumns. Summers sometimes have short spells of very hot weather, but the cool ocean breeze brings relief, especially during evenings and nights. The city is situated on what is promoted as the “Rainbow Coast”, which is an appropriate title given the significant frequency of days with both sun and drizzle or showers.
