We've had nine straight days of temperatures above 80 degrees but we'll get a colder front through at least Monday. Today's weather could hit the high 70s and rainstorms could begin starting tomorrow. "L.A. is about an inch below normal for rain for this time of year," found the LA Times. "It is a bad sign when January, normally one of the year's wettest months, is so dry. It's also been three degrees warmer than usual..." Southern California is experiencing La Niña, which brings us drier conditions as the Pacific Northwest and northeast experience lower than usual temperatures and more rain.
