In case you hadn't noticed, IT'S COLD. But not just regular cold: RECORD COLD. According to the National Weather Service, temperatures yesterday hit the lowest they've been in years in downtown LA.

For example! If you were in DTLA, you froze your ass off when the thermometer read 34 degrees. The last time it dipped below 34 in that area was back on December 22, 1990, when it got to 33 degrees. It hasn't actually been freezing in DTLA -- 32 degrees -- since 1979.

The lowest temperature that has ever been recorded in DTLA is 28 degrees, which the area last saw in 1949.
