The coastal climate of Montecito is always a enjoyable surprise to the first-time visitor. This is particularly true during the winter months – roughly from October through March. Montecito is a "get out in the sunshine and fresh air" place, with all the activities that it implies. A short drive into the Santa Ynez Wine Region (some 40-minutes out of town) the temperature is always around 10 degrees warmer without the ocean breezes.
Towering mountains, very close to the sea, shelter the coastal strip from inland heat and cold. The result is a comfortable year-round average temperature of 64 degrees, with an average maximum of 74 and an average minimum of 56 degrees.
All this means there is no "off-season" in Montecito with sunshine all year round but the warmest months without morning fog and with higher temperatures July through October are often the best months.
