Well, um. California has pretty diverse climate. (It's the size of France, and at least as varied.) California has mountains and deserts and coastline and plains that go from subtropical to temperate. I doubt DP was envisioned to be much like the Bay Area, where Greg and Chaosium and Issaries are. The Bay is in general foggy and 12C, or sunny and 25C. I would figure more extreme temperature and less humidity for DP.

I personally have treated DP as somewhat like a severe-weather year in the Sierra Nevada foothills (but that might in turn be because I used to live there).
