Neil Berg in Daily Bruin: Despite recent cold front, LA is still experiencing trend toward warmer weather

This February has been the coldest in nearly 60 years, with the average temperature in LA this month falling five degrees lower than the normal average. However, Neil Berg, associate director of science at UCLA’s Center for Climate Science, said the climate in LA is still getting warmer despite this temporary cold period.

“The climate is getting warmer and this is just a part of our normal winter weather,” Berg said. “We’re just in a cool, wet winter this time, but it’s not part of a larger trend that we’d expect under climate change.”
