Picture San Diego, and you don’t think of harsh winters or brutally hot, humid summers. San Diego is almost always sunny and tends to stay between 65 F and 75 F year-round. For the first half of fall semester and the second half of spring semester, the weather is almost always perfect. This can make it a challenge to resist the beach and study for exams. However, contrary to popular belief, in the winter, clouds and strong winds can make it seem colder than most people might expect. Nights during winter months particularly, can get very cold, especially for a group of kids who have become accustomed to the characteristically mild temperatures of Southern California. Rain is not very common in San Diego, but when it does rain, it pours, and even students who hail from states with wet climates can be caught complaining.

The best way to dress for the weather is to layer clothing. Short sleeves, long sleeves, and jackets make it easier to adjust to the weather, which can change quickly and dramatically over the course of a day. It’s probably best to err on the side of caution and have a jacket you don’t need than to wish you had one that you don’t.
