I agree - and you should try coming to LA during February from one of the states with endless grey winters (by February you are 4 months into the endless grey darkness). The colors of the trees, flowers, ground foliage, etc., hit your eyes like food to a starving person. It's glorious.

For me, I don't care what month it is, as long as its warm at the beach then I'm happy.

I think we have the same good weather/bad weather ratio here in Southern Ca as they do in most places, about two to one good over bad. Difference in L.A. for my taste is we get 'em all at once. June, July, August and September are bad (unless you're at the beach), the other eight months of the year are good. Back east, July and August are bad, and so are January and February.

I especially like October because it gets cooler at night & you know rain is not far off. Unfortunately, santa ana winds generally start up w/ the low humidity & fires inevitably break out But November is really the first month of autumn when days stay below 80F & nights get chilly [though recall many toasty Thanksgiving Days] and it begins to rain.

Fall is the best time of year. Pumpkins and football. What more could you ask for?

How much rain is there?? We're moving down next week, and while I'm excited in general, I'm bummed at the prospect of the stereotypical 365 days of sunshine. I like my overcast and rainy days...

Well, not knowing where you are coming from, it is probably drier down here but sometimes we can get into a pattern of storms with phenomenal amounts of rainfall. Most winters involve a period of sunshine with a rain storm every 2 weeks or so [it is really nice because the days are sunny\ air is clean & temps perfect for outdoor activities - 65-75]. Some winters are nearly bone dry but when it rains the hills turn green & lush & snow in the mountains at resort levels.

Yeah, it never rains until it does, and then it won't stop. Like a prophesy!

Yeah, I've noticed in the OC that in the huge flat part, the air just kinda sits there. Fortunately it's not like that here. I mostly avoid the OC but I do love Laguna Beach.

Thanks. You answered a question I was just pondering. I think I'm headed to Laguna Beach tomorrow. It's also cool to hear that the weather does indeed change. Can't wait to experience the whole year of LA. Coming from the southeast as I do I can tell you I still appreciate July and August. It seems like Los Feliz is usually cooler than the LA temps I see posted everywhere. Maybe it's just me. Either way, I love it.
