The Big Chill: 'What has happened to summer in Southern California?'
It's a cool, cool summer. In fact, it's downright cold.
We set a record yesterday at UCLA, "recording a high of 56 degrees," according to LA Now. The Los Angeles area is "enjoying its coolest summer since 1991."
"What has happened to summer in Southern California?" asks a release issued by the National Weather Service. Blame the marine influence of the springtime, they explain, breaking down the region's cold temps logged at various major airports.
But the cold snap could be over as soon as this weekend, as "temperatures are expected to warm up considerably beginning Sunday and last through the middle of next week." So don't lose hope yet for those more appropriate lazy, hazy, crazy--and hot--days of summer.
