What if?

SF is unique. It sits on the tip of a peninsula that juts out into the SF Bay. It is bounded on 3 sides by cold water. The Pacific Ocean and SF Bay. The cold water prevents the land mass from warming even in summer. So there are always cood nights. The only break in the coastal range of mountains from Seattle to LA is the Golden Gate. The fog bank lives off the CA coast on the Pacific. When the temps warm the fog is sucked in off the ocean through the Golden Gate across SF - cool summer days. When it warms in the morning it is pushed back out into the Pacific. It's like a big grey tongue moving in and out all summer. The result is no mosquitoes. The great qutoe from Mark Twain is "the coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." A bit of an exageration but you get the point.
