San Diego is known for its delightfully sunny and warm weather with daily temperatures averaging around 60°F to 70°F. The city receives less rainfall than any other part of the west coast. In fact, it rains less than 12 inches a year, resulting in a relatively arid environment.

Due to the varied topography of the land, visitors have the unique opportunity to experience coastal, mountain, and desert climates with temperatures varying as much as 10°F within a short drive. During the months of May and June, commonly known as "May Gray" and "June Gloom," heavy cloud cover keeps the air cool and damp on the coast, while 5 to 15 miles inland clouds dissipate yielding to sunshine and blue skies.

Low humidity is ideal for year-round sightseeing and outdoor adventure. Early spring brings an abundance of vibrant wildflowers that transform the city's mountainsides and deserts. Autumn leaves umbrella the city creating a tremendous display of fall color. The majority of the city's limited rainfall occurs during the months of January and February, but showers typically last for only a few hours or for one to two days at most. There is virtually no bad time of year to visit San Diego.
