San Diego in September Is What the Locals Live for!

The weather is still warm and you will have the beaches to yourself. Visiting San Diego in September is paradise. The warm and dry air from the desert blows into San Diego creating a comfortable climate for a leisure vacation.

As far as San Diego weather goes for September, the average high temperature is 82 degrees Fahrenheit while the average low temperate is 64 degrees Fahrenheit.  The water temperature in the Pacific Ocean is cooling off and averages around 65 degrees Fahrenheit.

If you didn’t get the chance to get out of the house yet this summer and are still looking for a getaway, I higher recommend you consider San Diego in September. The sun is warm, and the water feels so refreshing. You always don’t have to worry about crowds and high season prices.
