LA actually experiences most of its rainfall in the winter months. Miami sees very little rain in winter, since that is the dry season down there.

So the wind made it feel colder? GET OUT! LOL. Still doesn't mean the temp was actually lower though. Also they don't take the temperature in the sun. God you really know less about weather than I already thought LOL.
i was just sharing my experience, and showing how it indeed is wamer.

i know its not taken under the sun, but on 3rd street standing in the sun is much warmer than standing in the sun on the pier.

i think by far you are the most ridiculous forumer on here, may i remind you you created over 40 counterfeiter accounts in the santa barbara vs melbourne thread. may i also remind you of the countless accounts you made named after me saying gross things (LA Mex is gay, ****LAMex, etc).

i really feel sorry for you.

He loves to use temps taken at the SoMa pier as evidence of LA's balmy winter nights but will quickly dismiss it for when it comes to summer high temps.
then forget the pier and use Getty Center data, how about that?

and its a fact LA on average is at least 10 F warmer than the Bay Area.

I love the weather in coastal SoCal but there were times I wished it was warmer both on land and in the ocean, it was still incredibly comfortable though. But I don't try to pretend it's something it's not. He's probably salivating at the thought of the coast being 5 degrees warmer on average and can't wait for 2050 to roll around LOL.
if anybody loves LA Area's climate its me, and i dont paint it as something its not, im providing facts, facts arent fake, think whatever you want.

You'll get various opinions here, but my vote would go to LA as having a much more attractive overall climate than Miami.

I've been to both cities quite a number of times in various seasons and the higher humidity in Miami would be the biggest negative factor for me. For several reasons (and I can give you many), I much prefer dry air to more humid air. I generally feel much more energetic in dry air than humid air.

im not proving coastal LA is warmer, wtf are you guys reading.

ive said it before, Miamim is warmer in winter look at the fuc*ing averages, its not rocket science, all im arguing about is some points other posters on here keep getting wrong.

like hawaii4ever arguing parts of LA dont see average winter highs in the 70s, i provide NOAA data, and yet somehow him, and all of you think im BS, and think im arguing that LA is warmer than Miami in winter.

DAMN

Thus, making it a better place in winter to experience warm weather. The microclimates do not matter--for winter warmth, Miami easily wins and it ain't a contest.
you dont get it do you.

LOS ANGELES is a city of microclimates.

coastal locations see the 50s low temps, the rest of LA sees 40s.

the area ive pointed out time and time again is 70 F+ and above. the rest of LA is mid 60s to upper 60s.

micro climates do matter for winter warmth, LAX is 65 F in winter, East LA is 71 F, all NOAA data, dont even say im wrong, because this is NOAA data here.

So you found one location on land in all of the Greater LA with an average winter low of 50 or above...Congrats? Maybe it's all the vehicle exhaust from the 405 keeping it so warm lol. Now that you have found that one location lets see how often you use that and try to portray that as the typical low for a large area of Los Angeles despite pretty much every other official weather stations showing lows in the 40's.

10 degrees warmer during the DAY, yeah. But at night, NO.
