What is the weather like in San Diego around the start of May? Is it good enough to sunbathe and swim in the ocean?
We frequently have what we call "May Gray". If we have overcast skies in the morning it usually burns off my noon and we have sunshine.
The average water temperature in May is 64° F.
It all depends on what temps you are used to at home. Here the Pacific Ocean is always chilly until maybe August/September but there ARE folks who go in to swim all year round.
The water temp at 64F is too chilly for me!
Some folks might lay out if it is a sunny day. The temps will be mid to high 60sFto low 70s F if sunny. Mornings can be cloudy at that time of year.Edited: 27 November 2013, 00:13
