Typical weather around Christmas?

In researching what the weather will be in late December it appears that the average is 66 degrees during the day, cooler at night. For those of you who live in San Diego, is that about right? It sounds like jackets wouldn't be needed during the day and if staying at a place with a pool, it's possible to swim at that time of year as well??

Thank you!

I have spent every Christmas for the past 12 years in San Diego and all I can say is hard to say! Sometimes we go to the beach and run/play (not swim to cold for that) on the sand. Others times it is pouring rain and we are stuck inside. For the most part it is sunny and cool. Jeans and a long sleeve tee or light jacket in the day is typical, coat in the evening. It is not usually pool weather in December, though sometimes we go into the spa.

The above poster has it right. Rain is possible...I think there was rain 2 years ago. You could swim in the pool if it is heated (check with hotel). As mentioned, the ocean is too cold. Also, if the high temp is 66F that means it would be below that for most of the day, plus there could be a breeze, so a jacket could be needed.

Most of the hotel pools are heated so you could swim and go in the jacuzzi but it will be chilly when you get out.I tell people to expect temps in the 60s with cooler temps at night or if it rains. IF it gets into the 70s then you will be happily surprised.

The Embassy Suites hotels have indoor pools if you want to make sure about comfy swimming.
