Winter in San Diego

San Diego Flipflops in Winter

by Roberta Murphy Winter in San Diego is in full force, and so many who are relocating to or vacationing in San Diego ask about this season.

I can only refer to winter as our “cooler” season, where an occasional dusting of frost might occur in eastern portions of the county. The coastal band of real estate, though, remains pretty balmy during all the months–and hopefully provides some rainfall to green up our golden hills.

What winter clothing should visitors to San Diego bring?


You may start off the day with a run along the coastline. The weather might be brisk if you are out early. Bring a lightweight jacket and possibly some gloves if your are jogging on the beach. By noon, the weather should have warmed and even sleeveless clothing might suffice. But by evening, you’ll wisely pull out that lightweight jacket or sweater to wear out to evening dinner.

Averages temperatures in San Diego have an average range between the mid and high 60’s from November through May.

As a rule, San Diego is casual and accepting of casual attire–and if you don’t already own a pair, count on returning with an obligatory pair of flipflops!
