How is the weather in September?

I am going somewhere in California next month as I usually take a trip out west in September. I've been to San Diego and it is a very nice place to visit....but I want to go somewhere else this time. So I am looking at Santa Cruz, Laguna Beach, or Newport Beach....for a beach vacation........how is the weather in Santa Cruz in September....is it beach weather or is it a little chilly?

September is one of our warmest months in Santa Cruz. When I was teaching we almost always had a few days of temps in the 90's after we went back to school. I dreaded it because there is almost no air/con in this area.

However, that is not typical, but you should be very comfortable here in September, unless you are used to high temps, and especially, high humidity, which we don't have.

It will not be as warm as San Diego, however, on average. It will not be "tropical" beach weather, but everyone seems to enjoy it, anyway.

So somewhere in the high 70s to mid 80s? If so, then that should not be a problem...but if it gets closer to like the 60s during the day...then that will be.

The info I gave you is an average. I would count on low 70's and not 80's unless we have one of those unusual fall 'heat waves' Yes, 80's is hot to us. Southern Cal will probably have more of the "beach weather" you are looking for,

September is Mother Nature's joke on all the kids - as soon as they all go back to school, the weather is fabulous :-)

Here is a link to a graph of the seasonal weather averages and records:

As you can see, the average temperatures are pretty nice, but of course it isn't guaranteed - it could be a cool September. And since the low temps are in the 50s, it will be chilly in the mornings and evenings, and probably comfortably warm in the afternoons.
