San Diego is warm nearly all year, but as the temperatures increase, we are reminded just how perfect the SD weather is! This month we are looking at some expressions with “warm” to celebrate the coming of summer. We are also looking at San Diego’s weather temperature averages throughout the year to show how ideal the SD weather is . . . from January to December!
Expressions with “Warm”
Definition: a party to celebrate when someone moves into a new apartment or house.
Example: Are you going to Sarah’s housewarming party? She just moved to a new place in Little Italy!
We can also use housewarming + gift/present to talk about the present we give someone at a housewarming party.
Example: I bought her a new cheese plate as a housewarming gift.
Definition: any person; someone needed to be present in order to be counted.
Example: The director needed a few warm bodies for the scene, so he asked the people at the beach if they wanted to be in the movie.
Warm the bench/bench warmer
Definition: to be a part of the team but not play.
Example: He warmed the bench for most of the game.
We also call the person who warms the bench a “bench warmer.”
Example: I played baseball when I was young, but I was not very good. In fact, I was a bench warmer most of the time.
Definition: a polite way to end an email or letter.
For examples of ways to begin emails or letters, check out our article on Beginning an Email in English.
Warm up to (someone/something)
Definition: to begin liking someone or something when you didn’t at first.
Example: He’s warming up to the idea of getting a dog.
Definition: greeting someone; being very happy to see him or her.
Example: What a warm welcome from my host family! They had a big BBQ for me and I got to meet all of my neighbors.
San Diego’s (Very Warm!) Yearly Weather Averages
How good is the weather in SD? It’s pretty amazing! Holiday Weather provides excellent statistics on the average monthly temperatures for San Diego. While the rest of the Northern Hemisphere is freezing in the winter, San Diego is enjoying not only warm temperatures, but many sunny days; it’s not uncommon for people to be at the beach several weekends during January and February!
In the chart below, we can see the average high and low temperatures. San Diego stays consistently warm in the winter months, so although you need a jacket at night, it doesn’t have to be a huge parka!
The Pacific Ocean gets significantly warmer in the summer months, but with a wet suit, San Diego’s surfers can be in the water all year.
