i was wondering how long this lack of turbulence will last. I might be going to san fran next weekend and i wanted to know if i will be lucky enough to enjoy a turbulent free flight like the ones recently...

We are starting to enter a summer pattern as the jet stream moves up more towards the north.

In winter, you have to worry more about the jet stream as it's lower.

In the summer, most flights are fairly smooth, however takeoffs and landings in hot areas can be bumpy because of the heat, and of course, storms can also make an unpleasant flight.
