Orinda is a tiny city, the weather is the same in the whole city, its not as hot as Walnut Creek/Concord but less foggy and warmer that San Francisco. Orinda is a high income area with great schools, one of the best places to live in the country.

Hi Tim,
That is a tough question, as most of Orinda gets fog that rolls over the Oakland Hills in the evening/early morning. The areas that are least affected by fog are the homes that are perched highest on the various ridges. For example, there are homes in the Orinda Country Club or off of El Toyonal that sit high enough on a ridge that the fog doesn't necessarily go up that high. However, driving to get to the home, you will encounter fog. Most of the homes get terrific sunlight, so long as there is not heavy tree cover around. As I mentioned above, the fog generally only comes in during the late evening time and burns off by mid morning. On rare occasions, the fog will stay there all day, and that is usually in the winter months. Moraga and Lafayette fall into this as well, as they are both in the same valley...

Hope that answers your question.
