Los Angeles enjoys beautiful weather almost year-round,, although summers can be quite hot. The average high temperatures in July and August are 86 and 84 degrees Fahrenheit respectively, while the average lows are 66 and 63 degrees. However, coastal areas tend to be cooler than inland areas, so residents often escape the heat by heading to the beach.

September and October are usually the most pleasant months of the year, with average highs of 79 and 77 degrees and average lows of 62 and 60 degrees. November through February is the rainy season, but even then rainfall is relatively light, averaging less than five inches per month. And of course, winters are basically snow-free. So whether you're a sun worshipper or a beach bum, you'll find the perfect weather in Los Angeles.

Chicago's weather is notoriously unpredictable. The city experiences all four seasons, and the transition between them can be sudden and extreme. In the winter, temperatures can dip well below freezing, and strong winds off of Lake Michigan make the cold even more biting. Snow is also common, and Chicagoans often have to contend with treacherous ice storms.

Spring brings some relief from the cold, but it can also be a volatile season, with severe thunderstorms bringing high winds and heavy rains. Summer is usually hot and humid, with temperatures often topping 90 degrees. However, the city sometimes gets a reprieve from the heat in the form of a cool lake breeze. Fall is generally mild, but it can be wet, as heavy rains are not uncommon. As a result of the city's unpredictable weather, Chicagoans have to be prepared for anything.
