Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a long term parking space in Oakland, California, one should consider the climate and weather of the area. In general, Oakland experiences mild temperatures throughout most of the year. It is usually warmest from May to September when the average high temperature hovers around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. During the winter, the average low temperature is around 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

To protect vehicles from potential damage, it is important to account for the effects of moisture and extreme temperatures. In Oakland, the peak of the rainy season occurs in January, February, and March. It is important to make sure the parking space is well-drained to avoid water buildup. Additionally, it is important to consider the placement of the parking space in regards to sunlight. During the summer months, direct sunlight can cause the vehicle to heat up quickly, potentially damaging paint and other materials. During the winter months, the sun can provide some warmth but can also lead to cracking of plastics or fading of paint.
