Sunny days and cool balmy nights give Huntington Beach near perfect weather. Its location along the Pacific Ocean lends to a moderate environment without extreme heat, cold or rainfall, making it the perfect place for your ultimate beach vacation.
Year-round high temperatures average from the mid-60°'s F (18° C) to about 80° F (26° C), with the coolest conditions from December to February and the warmest weather from July to October. Occasional rain showers (averaging a total of less than 12 inches annually) occur mostly from December to February.
What to Pack:
In addition to your bathing suit, of course, be sure to bring sunscreen and a sweater. Those spending the entire day at the beach will find cool mornings giving way to warm afternoons. The sea breeze in the evenings can sometimes require a sweater, especially if you're taking a walk out on the Huntington Beach Pier to watch the sunset.
If you're basing your Southern California vacation in Huntington Beach, which we highly recommend given its central location, be prepared for different temperatures inland. During the summer months, depending on your destination, inland temperatures can be anywhere from five to twenty degrees warmer than at Huntington Beach! In the winter, inland temperatures can actually be five to ten degrees cooler than at Huntington Beach, with the Pacific Ocean acting as a natural temperature stabilizer.
