Los Angeles has a Subtropical-Mediterranean climate (Kppen climate classification Csb on the coast, Csa inland), and receives just enough annual precipitation to avoid Kppen's BSh (semi-arid climate) classification. Los Angeles enjoys plenty of sunshine throughout the year, with an average of only 35 days with measurable precipitation annually.[13]

The average annual temperature in downtown is 66.2 F (19.0 C): 75.6 F (24.2 C) during the day and 56.6 F (13.7 C) at night. In the coldest month - January - the temperature typically ranges from 59 to 73 F (15 to 23 C) (sometimes above and below these temperatures) during the day and 45 to 55 F (7 to 13 C) at night. In the warmest month - August - the temperature typically ranges from 79 to 90 F (26 to 32 C) (sometimes above and below these temperatures) during the day and around 64 F (18 C) at night. Temperatures exceed 90 F (32 C) on a dozen or so days in the year, from 1 day a month in April, May, June and November to 3 days a month in July, August, October and to 5 days in September.[13] Generally - the summer lasts nearly year round. Temperatures are subject to substantial daily swings; in inland areas the difference between the average daily low and the average daily high is over 30F (17C).[37] Average annual temperature of sea is 63 F (17 C), from 58 F (14 C) in January to 68 F (20 C) in August.[38] Sunshine hours is above 3,000 per year, from average 7 hours of sunshine / day in December to average 12 hours of sunshine / day in July
