Ventura County is located in Southern California and is generally characterized by a Mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters. However, there are considerable differences in weather patterns between the expansive Oxnard plain, the steep rocky mountain ranges near Ojai, the arid Cuyama Valley and the coastal bluffs. Ventura County Watershed Protection owns and maintains dozens of full-service weather stations that record and transmit weather parameters and the results can be found on the Weather Map. Real time weather data like rainfall and streamflow are incredibly useful for monitoring a storm as it progresses through the various geographic locations in the county.
