You must wear a turtleneck then, ha ha. It seriously does get cold in LA in the winter.

I've seen a few people wearing a scarf around here from December to March. I certainly wouldn't. The theory I have is that some people want to pretend that there are four distinct seasons in LA and wearing winter clothes, even when it's not necessary, helps them to convince themselves that it's "winter time".

We get rain and winter here, sometimes on both days.
Rest of the 362 days it is t-shirts and sandals.

Nope. Just a shirt. The warmest thing I wear here is a medium jacket. Its heavier than a sweat shirt but nowhere near being ski jacket. Even that only comes out a few times a year.

Californians, and I'd also lump Arizonans in this group, are the biggest p*ssies in the world when it comes to weather. No offense, as I've met a lot of great people here, but when it comes to the weather you guys really are.

You should be ready for living in Colorado then. Even there people rarely "bundle up." You'll want to buy a ski jacket but you probably will only need it on a few dozen or so winter nights when the wind is blowing cold or on a really bad snowstorm or if you actually go skiing. Even then if you're just going from your heated car to a heated building and not actually going to be outside you don't really need a ski coat. During the day in the winter there even if the temperatures are in the 20s and 30s, if it's sunny, you'll see people going out with short sleeves and no jacket at all. You sure as heck wouldn't want to be caught dead as a man wearing a scarf in Denver-- unless if you wanted to come across as "effeminate."

^^^^ The temperture of LA. No BS or opinionated comments.

From the comments on this thread, it appears that Californians, like vegaspilgrim said, are p**sies when it comes to weather. I just moved to the midwest from California, and 50 degrees is nice and warm!

I believe this is why people are willing to live in L.A. Living in Arizona is another story and it is usually more for affordability than the weather. I see more people trying to get out of Arizona to colder climates but cannot sell their homes because they are so upside down in what they owe vs. what their homes are worth.

Ok I understand all of the comments are opinions.

I mean it gets chilly but not a cold as New York! I understand now

I can bet my life savings that it will never be 7 degrees in Southern California

The weather in California is beautiful even when it is considered "cold"

I guess I have a different definition of "cold" as long as it is not lower than 30

California weather kicks the ass out of New York

One of my cousins friends said that it gets "cold" in Los Angeles He said it gets so cold that you need a scarf and gloves... Thats Bull ****! I think that person or who ever wears that on a regular "cold day" in Los Angeles needs to get shot!

In conclusion NO it does not get "cold in Southern California! and I don't give a **** who disagrees!
