Can be rainy, give yourself more than one day for optimum opportunity:

Could be absolutely anything from autumn gorgeous to winter storm dreadful/roads closed.

No way to tell until a few days before your trip.

>>hear the rain doesn't last all day like the east coast<<

It's been some years since I grew up in California, but all day rain is what I remember as winter weather. When I first went to the East Coast as an adult, I was pleasantly shocked at cloudbursts that would come and go in an hour.

You heard wrong. If the storm door opens, it can rain for weeks on end. It is our rainy season. Or, it could be nice, cool and clear. No way to plan this far ahead.

There really isn't any way to tell. If it rains, it probably wont rain non-stop all day, but it could. Often a rainy day is periods of showers and heavy rain with general drizzilyness in between. Or sometimes the rain will be intermitent. You just don't know until the weather is here. March is generally nicer in that it is warmer and the wild flowers are blooming - but it can still be rainy. We get rain off and on from November to April most years.

Ignore any other advice coming from that source.

Could be better, could be worse. It would more likely be nicer, but Spring storms can close roads too.

In December we will go as far North as piedra blancas elephant seal rookery then head back South. Its usually windy, somewhat cold, drizzly or rain. Occasionally sunny. Guaranteed to be one of those. The one thing you can count on, you won't be able to drive the full length this year. If it rains hard, turn back.

Our typical winter weather pattern(if such a thing exists anymore) can be a few days of rain followed by a few clear days. So no one can predict what the weather will be in any given period of time. If you are here for a few days, it may rain everyday, or it could be sunny everyday. If you will be here for more than a few days you can play it by ear, like many of us who live here do. If not Luck of the draw.
