Hidden secret: The most popular vacation time in Monterey / Carmel continues through September and into October. Some of the warmest temperatures, least amount of rainfall and most days of sunshine without fog are enjoyed, making this a highly desirable time to plan events, weddings, meetings and vacations.

 

Unlike other California beach regions, the variation in water temperatures along California Central Coast shows a  differences of up to 10 degrees (Pacific Grove to Ventura in the month of August) so we've included the full chart for your vacation planning.  One contributing factor is the Alaskan ocean current that flows south. Its influence diminishes as it travels and by the time it reaches Santa Barbara, its effect is barely noticeable. Ocean swimming is less popular on the Central Coast than Southern California, though the region offers some great kayaking and surfing opportunities.

 

Air temperatures and rain: In January it gets down to 44 degrees Fahrenheit in the Monterey area, and rarely will you see a trace amount of snow, showing no accumulation. Unlike its northern counterpart, however, Santa Barbara (250 miles south and 4 hours by car) seldom experiences a night below 40 degrees in the winter, and if snow falls once in a decade, it makes headline news.
