Big Sur Climate

The proximity of the ocean modifies temperatures year round, providing a mild climate with minimal variations. Over 300 days a year of sunshine are interspersed with seasonal rains of over fifty inches a year (varying widely by exact location). Cool coastal fog often develops overnight and usually clears by midday in summer. Spring and fall bring the Sur's best weather, with clear, warm days and cool starry nights. Go inland just one or two miles and the influence of the ocean becomes abundantly clear: summer days in Big Sur's valleys often reach into the nineties while the beaches are still under wisps of fog. Come prepared with layers and clothing options any time of year.

Summer - Daytime temperatures in the 80's-90's inland, 60's-70's on the coast. Nighttime temperatures range from high 40's-60's. Rarely rains in summer. Coastal fog likely.

Fall - Daytime 60-70, nights 30-40. Clear, mild weather until Thanksgiving, when rainy season begins.

Winter - Daytime 40-50, nights in the 20's and 30's. Storms are consistent, often with only a day or two between rains. But these days can be brilliant and clear.

Spring - Daytime temperatures in the 60's and 70's, sometimes warming into the 80's. Nights in the high 30's to high 40's. Rain is much less frequent.
