May witnesses brilliant sunshine in California that lasts up to an average of 8 hours a day. Temperatures at many places are between a warm 75°F (23.9°C) to 80°F (26.7°C) during the day, while the nights are temperate between 50°F (10°C) to 60°F (15.6°C). Beaches in the south, such as Long Beach and Huntington Beach, have reasonably warm waters with the sea temperature of approximately 70°F (21.1°C) that many visitors find refreshing and enjoyable. The sunrays are not of the same intensity as those during the summer, which makes May visits to California quite pleasant in the absence of the swarming summer crowds. Rain almost disappears from the majority of the state with the progress of the spring season, and humidity decreases with a subsequent reduction in cloud cover. Overall, spring is lovely, and light clothing adds further delight while exploring the various attractions of the state.
