I'll be visiting L.A. over the weekend and I'm confused about what to pack. The forecast shows very low 70s tomorrow and Saturday, but underneath there's a RealFeel temp of high 70s/lows 80s. The difference in even more extreme for the beach areas. What's generally more accurate? The given temperature or the RealFeel estimated temperature?

I get cold easily, to me these temps make the difference between packing shorts and packing long jeans.

Pack both. Shorts for day and long pants for evening.

I likely will take both though I was hoping to get by with just a carry-on. Still, which temperature is usually most accurate in your experience?

"The AccuWeather RealFeelĀ® temperature does just that. The RealFeelĀ® uses multiple factors including the temperature, humidity, cloud cover, sun intensity, and wind to explain how hot it feels outside.

In comparison, the heat index only factors in the temperature and humidity."

I'd say its pretty accurate. You're going to feel hotter sitting on the beach in direct sun than you would somewhere in the shade. But like Charles said, it does cool off quickly at night, especially this time of year, and especially for someone who gets cold easily. You could get by all day and night with jeans but take the shorts too since they don't take up much space.
