Agree that it can get really hot in LA especially inland from the ocean, but nothing like the brutal heat of Phoenix or Tucson. Today was really beautiful for winter. Pasadena was 83F.

Places like Northridge, Woodland Hills and Calabasas have summer weather pretty similar to Phoenix because the weather is not much different. Riverside and San Bernardino can also get pretty scorching hot too. My original point was that L.A. is like those two cities in the sense that it has hot, dry summers with virtually no rain. This is excluding the coastal areas. I do know that PHX and Tucson do have monsoons though. One thing that makes L.A. more comfortable is that it cools off at night in the summer

What makes me laugh is when people say the weather in Southern California is to boring, if you have to look to the weather for entertainment your due for some new hobbies.
Sorry but weather adds character to one's life...if your don't appreciate 4 seasons, I feel sorry for you.

Every place has weather. Maybe what you meant is that silly old canard that bad weather (ie, unpleasantness) builds character?

Anyway, I guess you think people who live in - say - Moscow and/or Winnipeg have more character than - say - people who live in Biloxi and/or Anchorage. You know, because of all that 'character-building' done by the widely variable mid-continental climates? Right?

Southern California has four seasons. Not as distinct as some places, but more distinct than others.

It doesn't have to be bad weather...just varying weather. I'm not sure why weather has to be monotonous, boring, and unchanging to be good...is that how boring you like things?

I'll take nice sunny, breezy, white puffy cloud days that throw sunlight around in all directions, have dark spots, light spots, light drizzle, over night rain, etc over the dull, boring, monotone, white-smog filled skies of LA anyday.

You haven't lived in other places with nice weather apparently...you think comparing artic weather to a dry Mediterranean climate is an even comparison.
