Currently in Los Angeles — June 28th, 2022

The heat drops just a little bit

The weather, currently.

It’s another hot day in Los Angeles, though the highs are scooting down a little bit, so you’ll only be blasted with highs around 89°F in Downtown LA. Summer has only just started, but isn’t it already feeling like the dog days? While you languish in your easy chair, fanning the pearls of sweat around your neck, know that the evening will hit much cooler lows, bottoming out around 65°F. Consider becoming nocturnal. Make friends with the dumpster cats and your neighborhood skunk.
