Summer average maximum temperatures are close to 90° F and minimums are about 70°F. On rare occasions highs might hit 100° F or more. Humidity is usually high since we are surrounded by water. Even on hot days the beach is usually pleasant due to almost constant breezes. Ocean water temperatures in summer range from 80° F in June up to 85° in August. Our rainiest months are July and August, with an average of 7.0 inches of rain each. On hot summer days we frequently get mid to late afternoon thunder showers, sometimes every day and often with dangerous lightening. Fortunately they are usually brief.
In spring and fall, expect temperatures ranging from highs of 70 – 80° F and lows in the fifties.
Winter brings 50 – 60° F highs and lows in the 30’s and 40’s. It rarely freezes, even at night. Sweatshirts and jeans will suffice, but to walk the beach you may need a windbreaker and perhaps a coat to go out at night.
