The weather on the Central Coast of California is interesting and diverse. It is hard to pack for a trip to the central coast because it can be cold or cool in one place and burning hot a few miles away.
live in Cambria, Ca. and if we drive 25 miles, over highway 46, to
Paso Robles it can be in the 100's. You can be in thick fog in
Cambria and drive over the hill and the sun is shining.
suggest you always bring a jacket. I moved to Cambria, Ca. from
the Mississippi gulf coast in August. When I left Biloxi it
was miserably hot. When I arrived in Cambria I took a walk on
Moonstone beach and almost froze to death.
don't wear shorts in Cambria and I always have a jacket close. In
fact, on almost any day of the year I wear a lite jacket or sweater.
However, and this is a big however, if the wind changes we can
get an off shore wave of hot air
which can put the temps in the 100's. This doesn't happen very
often but when it does we are extremely unconfortable. Most people in Cambria and other
towns do not have air conditioning. The good thing is the heat only last
for a few days.
the most part, the central coast weather is absolutely fantastic when
compared to other places around the country.
