It's Winter In Southern California Completely Out Of Nowhere After 200 Days Of Hot Weather
The cold swooped in pretty quick.
Extremely cold temperatures hitvery quickly this week, and suddenly just like that, it's winter on the West Coast.
Temperatures took a swift drop all across the region, with weekend rain and mountain snow causing actual freeze warnings in San Luis Obispo County just north of Los Angeles, as well as in Apple and Lucerne Valley in SoCal.
On Saturday, Downtown Los Angeles had its first temperature under 70 degrees, ending 200 days of consecutive hot weather.
The streak began on April 21 and continued through November 6.
