Local beach business owners said their businesses got a boost from the summer-like weather this week.
According to the National Weather Service's website, San Diego typically has a two-week stretch of summer-like weather every January.
Beach business owners said they're lucky this year's streak happened during the holiday weekend.
"Well, it's like a day in July, the way it's supposed to be: sunny [and] beautiful," said Hamels manager Skyler McManus.
2010 was tough on businesses because summer was unseasonably cold and followed by a stormy holiday season.
"You're going to get winter weather but it hit at the wrong times," said McManus, who believes the weather made a down economy even harder on the beach businesses. "When you mix all those things together
ugh, it can wear on you."
Business owners hope the holiday weekend weather will continue to bring people to the beach and their stores.
"We need actually a really warm summer and I hope this... is a nice little gateway to it," McManus said.
