Not in that photo. He seems pretty comfortable in that car with its top down.

The idiocy, its jut too much...

The fact that the game is in los santos should be enough to tell you there won't be any snow in the streets. None, anywhere aside from the mountains, none. At least I hope not. That would be a huge fail on the devs part. Come on people!

oh crap, I really thought it looked like a layer of snow on the streets (on the sidewalk) :/.
The roof in the background also looked white enough for it to be snow (that is a roof, right? the slanted one, behind the bins.)

And I know that it would seem a bit weird with the local climate, but it is possible isn't it? Not a thought I would qualify idiotic in any case.

Edit: I am absolutely certain that snow in Los Santos is plausible >:(.

Well if they're going for any kind of realism, no. it is completely idiotic to think snow will be in a recreation of los angeles. I've lived here my whole life and I can say for certain that it does not snow anywhere in the los angeles area aside from the mountains. Never has, hopefully never will. However, this is a game so maybe they'll suspend some reaism for people who like that sort of thing.

Nah dude, we're talking about the sunny West coast. That's just the bright sunlight washing out the sidewalk and stuff. Plus, as has been said, he's got the top down, and the guy way in the back to the right seems to be wearing a sleeveless white shirt.

Okay, :/ , it's true that there would be more signs if there were snow in the picture lol, I give up on that being snow in the picture XD.

Even in the beginning I thought it may be just that, the colour being washed out by the Sun, I was just excited for snow in a game that isn't set to specific areas :p.

Hasn't there been snow in LA before? I mean, I've never lived in California before, so I definitely can't say that I know better that some of you who live there, so I hope you guys don't take it that way ^^.

I'm just sure I've heard of snow in LA, even if it is very rare :(.

According to the LA Almanac it snowed once in the last 100 years in 1932, about 2 inches.

Aha! I knew it! ... even though it was a long time ago >_>.

I just looked it up, There was also a snowstorm in 1949, which was the biggest recorded, and "Since the 1949 storm, the downtown Los Angeles weather station has recorded snow only six times—and not once since 1962."

So yeah, even though it is possible for snow in Los Angeles, it's not something I'd expect, after looking at that stuff lol.
