Question to fellow Southern Californian A.netters,

Why is it so friggin COLD for the last week and a half?!

I've been wearing a large jacket everywhere I've gone this whole week. Last night, the temperature in Corona dipped to 27 degrees (-3 C) and has been staying close to freezing on most nights. In the day, about 50 (about 12 C). So how cold is it where you are and any guesses why it's so unnaturally cold for this time of year?

EDIT: Luckily since I'm in L.A. right now, it's about 10 degrees (F) warmer, so it's mainly my family that has to live with the freezing temp.

I have no idea how cold it is in Burbank. My thermometer is frozen over.

Just kidding... but only sort of. I know it's cold when my dogs just tiptoe outside long enough to go to the bathroom, and then rush back in. Can't say I blame them.

Sounds like the East Bay...allegedly there was frost on the ground this morning, but I had three blankets on me and slept through the trauma of it all.

Hey, I am from LA and am currently in New Orleans. Both places are cold right now. Then again, I lived in London and these temps were a welcome relief after the winter

I was wondering the same thing. I leave for work at 0400 and freeze my ass off walking to the car.

I don't know. The clear skies and the wind is normal for this time of year, but it's usually at least warm.

Perhaps it was that goofy ass rain dance that was performed up at Lake Arrowhead a couple of weeks ago. Remember that? It was front page news in both The Sun newspapers and The Press Enterprise.

On the plus side, it IS a nice refreshing change. The low temps help set the mood for the winter holidays. And at least we probably won't have an encore of last years fires. So maybe the cold is a blessing in disguise.

So how about that global warming crisis?  Insane

You wimps!  Laugh out loud


Spend a winter in Duluth, Minnesota or even Chicago, Illinois and get back with me.  Smile

We are having a cold spell here in the Bay Area also. Johnboy is lucky because he is in the East Bay. I am only 5 blocks from the beach so it only got down to 42 degrees F.

Matt D is right, its Christmas time and it's supposed to be cold in the Northern Hemisphere.
The best thing to do is stick a log in your fireplace, make a glass of egg nog & brandy and listen to your favorite Christmas tunes. The Carpenters "Christmas Portrait' is one of my favorites.  Smile


The dry conditions with no clouds to keep the daytime heat in at night is the reason for the cold nights. Rain is expected this weekend. Expect a lot of brand new SUVs flipped over and in the ditches this weekend.  Sad

The only Christmas reel tape I have is Ray Conniff's 'Here We Come A-Caroling' (1965).
Most of my Christmas music I have is on 8track. I don't want to be bothered with flipping over records or threading reel tapes when I throw Christmas parties. I'd rather be drinking and having a good time with my guest and making sure no one pukes on my carpet.  Smile

It's been the same here in Tucson. Cool mornings (30-40 F) warming up to the 60-70 degree range in the afternoon. This is nothing to what you get in the northern or Mid-Atlantic reaches. Back when I was in Tennessee, there were some places (mostly in the Appalachian Mountains) where the low temperatures on a summer day would be in the thirty degree range. As a kid living in the mountains, anything above 50 was T-shirt weather. We didn't start bundling up until the temperatures got down to the mid-thirties. To really experiance winter, live in any cold mountain region or someplace like Chicago, Duluth, or anyplace in Pennsylvania or further north for a winter. The post about the dogs reminds me of a cat we had while living on Lookout Mountain. During the wintertime, he'd go out through his cat door, do his business and then come right back in.

Ah yes, the good old usually predictable southern California weather has people going nuts. Be prepared, though, people, the odd weather may continue. After all, I do remember one Christmas day in L.A in the 1970's. where we woke up to a high temperature that day of..........105.

Yeah, this reminds me of the wonderful Santa Ana Christmas back in like 98 or 99. I was in San Clemente and it was like 89 on Christmas Day. Sort of hard to get in the spirit then!

In the 12 years I lived in the area, I saw snow twice in Thousand Oaks (stuck to the ground once) and a few nights of 35-36 degree lows in Irvine.

But this is Southern California.. pick your poison! Would you rather be chilly or burnt to the ground or in a collapsed building or washed away or driven out by mud?
