Climate: You’ll get plenty of warm sunshine in Hemet! The inland valleys are much warmer than the coast, with summer highs easily into the upper 80s and even low 100s with low humidity. But sundown brings pleasant temperatures as the air cools off a bit. Remember to bring a hat and sunscreen to protect your skin from the heat and sun!
