Vacation Tips: Checking In On The Weather In Anaheim, CA


If you are planning a trip to California, consider checking out the various places with live bands, museums, parks, and all the big ticket attractions, especially the Anaheim weather.
Here are some vacation tips that prepares you for the weather in Anaheim, CA.

Spring is usually the most friendly time of the year to enjoy Anaheim weather. Average lows range from the high upper forties to the mid-fifties and highs are usually in the seventies. Bring a windbreaker or sweater for the cooler nights, and you are good to go.

Summer sees temperature lows in the sixties and highs in the upper seventies to lower eighties. When visiting during this time of year, pack very light clothing such as sleeveless shirts, shorts, and bathing suits. Bring plenty of sunscreens to protect your skin from the summer sun. Backpackers are warned to always hydrate during treks and while exploring the city by foot.

September and October temperatures average lows in the fifties and sixties and highs in the eighties. November temperatures drop into lows in the fifties and highs in the seventies. Bring a light jacket for the cooler nights and if you are staying out late.

The winter months are warm compared to the most part of the country with average high temperatures in the upper sixties and low seventies and lows dropping into the fifties. Again, a light jacket, windbreaker or warm sweater will suffice at this time of year.

The evenings, in Anaheim, has the process starting all over again where the cool, damp air off the Pacific brings in low clouds with very little liquid moisture. Monthly precipitation for June is only 0.16 inches. July averages only 0.05 inches of rainfall and tends to be about 4-5 degrees warmer, with lows in the mid-60s and high temperatures in the low to mid-80s as the marine layer weakens with moderating (upper 60s) water temperatures. August tends to be the warmest month (average daily high of 87 degrees), as the water temperature reaches towards it zenith (of about 70 degrees-a little chilly for me) resulting in a weakening marine layer.

If you like to sleep in and avoid the cloudy Anaheim mornings and warm waters are not on your checklist, Disneyland may be for you. Generally, the distance to either Disney location in Anaheim, CA or Orlando, FL is within the ballpark of being the same flying time. The transportation cost will generally be similar. The choice of which Disney theme park to visit this summer may actually come down to preferences in climate. Disneyland, in Anaheim California, has a Mediterranean type climate, which has the characteristics of a warm, dry, summer. Anaheim tends to receive its precipitation from November to May when the jet stream dips farther south in the United States. However, Anaheim, in June is susceptible to what Meteorologists call the “June Gloom,” where the morning skies are cloudy from the marine layer moving in off the Pacific Ocean.
