Why is for so many on this site, only when Southern California is a topic, coincidentally, the temperature of the freaking ocean spontaneously takes on such massive significance? I have a choice between two jobs. One is in NYC, but Im taking the gig in Miami because the ocean is warmer. Just ridiculous.

Because California has a lot of haters without reasonable reasons, therefore people make up absurd things, for instance, the Pacific is cold.

I am about 25 miles from the Everglades. That is about as far south you can get without swimming.

Incidentially, it was in the 80s last Christmas. Lovely having the oven on cooking dinner for hours and having the AC blasting away.

Is Southern Ca. that hot the end of December?
Well no **** Southern Ca is that hot at the end of December,most of the december and January days are in the 70's and 80's,except when it rains,one time it was in the high 80's going up into the 90's straight for 5-6 days in january

the latitude of Southern California is line up with South Carolina,yet southern california is much warmer in winter,in south carolina the winters are like 54 degrees,if you want warm winters with hot summers in southern california,just go a few miles inland within the beach.but the beaches are warmer in winter though,in the high 80's

no its not. Beaches in Southern California in winter are 65 F-69 F average highs, and 48 F-52 F average lows

high 80s at beaches are seen during our winter heat waves

Because many people don't like cold water. It can be very uncomfortable. Florida water temps are much more desirable IMO, all year round.

It's only discussed when Southern CA is a topic because for such a beachy place people love to brag about, it has freaking cold ocean water and most East Coasters are not used to it, also because it is often as a region conpared to Florida and therefore see above for the reason again.
