'I spent the coldest winter of my life one summer in San Francisco', Walt Whitman
It rains in Northern California all the time (except July-Aug when it gets foggy instead)...
Sadly USTA BJK Tennis Center at Flushing would be great BUT the courts are all spread out so it would not makes sense for team tennis.
Is this meant to be a serious post? just to set some thing correctly for any foreign readers of this forum..
The tournament is being held in Palo Alto, not San Francisco. They are almost an hour apart, and several micro-climates.
The tournament is not held in the Summer, it is held in May. Summer starts June 21st More than a month from start to start.
Walt Whitman did not say that. That is usually attributed to the great American humorist Mark Twain, the same that is famous for saying, "The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated" But some say no.
It does not rain in Northern California all the time, except in July and August when it is foggy.
So far in the tournament it has rained about two hours, and play got delayed.
There are indoor courts available. Even that rain is rare this time of year, a source tells me that Stanford has paid $50,000 to have the right to kick the members off the courts at a good quality club with 12 indoor court, and complete the tournament. I have my doubt that a contingency contract for rain would be that expense, but it could be as there is only one local club with the volume of indoor courts that might be needed if prolonged rain struck.
Weather forecast link
says the during May, SF averages .25 inches of rain, or 6 cm of rain. I could not find a similar listing of the rain for Palo Alto in May, but based on my experience, it would be slightly hotter during the day, and maybe / maybe not slightly cooler during the night in Palo Alto, than in San Francisco during May. In contrast with the .25 inches of precipitation in San Francisco during May, in New York, the rainfall during May averages over 4 inches according to this page
