Like the rest of San Diego, La Jolla benefits from a mild, Mediterranean climate that is sunny and temperate throughout the year. The average high temperature stays between the mid-60s and mid-70s, with August beeing the warmest month the degrees can reach up to 90. However, we are located close to the beach and we have a cool breeze, a sweater might be required for cool nights.
The summer institute attire is very casual - please dress comfortably, summer/beach attire. Shorts, T-shirts and flip flops are welcome.
