Diego Weather - California is called the
“Sunshine State” and that’s exactly
what San Diego has. Sunshine and lots of it. Almost
110 sunny days a year! However, Mother Nature can
sometimes be fickle and likes to mix it up a bit with
fog and rain. On occasion she even likes to drop snow
in the local mountains.
So what should you expect when visiting San Diego?
November through February is considered
the city’s rainy season, with most falling in
January and February. Julian is the prime area to
visit during these months. What can be a better combination
than snow and hot apple pie?
During the months of March, April, and into May spring
flowers and tress are at their finest. This is the
perfect season to head into the desert areas around
San Diego to see the beginnings of the season. Just
north of downtown is The Flower Fields at
Carlsbad Ranch. This 50-acre parcel overlooking
the Pacific Ocean is covered with over 1,500 colorful
Annuals, Perennials, and Garden Mums.
Fog engulfs the coast during June, but “June
Gloom” usually burns off by mid-day.
The days are overcast but not normally cold. July
is warm with temperatures continuing to rise as the
days pass. Surfers and jet skiers become common sights
and the beach is a popular hot spot.
By August and September the city’s
temperatures are at their hottest. When visiting attractions
with animals, such as the San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal
Park, it’s best to get there when the animals
are most active. Which is usually in the early mornings
or late afternoons.
When October rolls around the days
are usually still warm, but nights are chilly. Fall
is definitely in the air.
San Diegans are used to a Mild Climate,
so what residents might think of as cold, visitors
might find bearable or even consider warm. Anytime
is the right time to visit San Diego.
