I really don't mind the 40s, love it. I really hope it will get 60s in the day time. I guess if you are in LA area, it is cooler. I am in inland empire and it is HOT.
We live in the same state, we don't even have the same weather! We are about 30-40 miles apart and about every 10-15 miles the temperature can drop as much as 5-10 degrees, especially during the summer.
I have to agree with you, humidity and heat do not mix well.....
I think you have cooler weather in the winter, in the Inland Empire than we have in Los Angeles. You have more dramatic changes in the weather than we do. You also get ALOT more rain, and storms out there. By the way, this year we're supposed to have an El Nino, so we should get more rain this winter.
It's often 80 degrees at Christmas. We don't usually get the cooler weather until later in January and February. Last winter was an unusually dry winter, by the way. But I agree the real heavy duty rain is usually only during a couple of months.
Also compare Southern California to Northern California. It's pretty chilly up in the Bay area year round. The get about 3 times as much rain as we get down here, and only a few days of really warm weather. You can wear a jacket year round up there.
