the average temperature along the coast - including Seal Beach - is about 70 degrees. Summers (july, august, september) will be around 75-80, winters can get cold (50-65), especially at night where the temperature can easily drop below 35 degrees.

In late May/early June we have a weather phenomena called "June Gloom" creating a heavy coastal fog that does not burn off until around 1 or 2 pm.

Coastal Orange County is not a hot place. That is one of the main reasons why people love living here, and the housing is so expensive.

85 degrees (on average) in the summer on the coast? I don't think such a place exists. After all, according to Wikipedia, Santa Ana tops out at only 84 degrees (on average) at the height of the summer (Santa Ana, California - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia), and Santa Ana is pretty far inland.

As a general rule, temperatures go up as you get futher inland around here. Where it might be 85 degrees+ every day during the summer in Yorba Linda (very inland OC), it might only get to 85 degrees on the sand in Newport Beach a handful of times each summer, where the averages are going to be in the low 70's, and an 85 degree day represents a major heat wave.

Also, you won't find much variation between the various beach cities in OC, except that some go farther inland than others. For example, a place like Dana Point or Laguna Beach only goes inland a mile or two, and will be uniformly moderate. But, a place like Huntington Beach goes inland for 5-6 miles, and you might find places in HB that can get pretty warm during the summer. So, if you are intent on living in a "beach city," and want heat, HB might be your best bet.

Winter tempuratures in coastal OC average in the mid-60s during the day, but can range from the upper 50's to upper 70's during cold/warm periods. At night, you are looking at mid/upper 40's on average, but it can range from the upper 30's to mid 50's during cold/warm periods.

The bottom line is that coastal OC is not a very warm place. This isn't Miami or Honolulu. While I have never studied the issue, I bet about 80% of our days during the year fall in the 63-73 degree range. Not great for someone who craves heat, but, in my opinion, an optimal range for everday living.

Once or twice a year the temps invert, and the coastal areas will be hotter than the usually hot inland valleys. 100+ is not uncommon. When I was a kid in Capistrano Beach, they shut down my elementary school a few times because it was too hot in the non-airconditioned classrooms.

I'm looking for a place that wouldn't get that hot and stays around the 80's.

I think you're looking for Hawaii or South Florida, not Orange County.
