Scenes from the hottest February in L.A. on record

It was supposed to be one of the wettest Februaries on record. Instead, by one measure at least, it became the hottest.

At an average high temperature of 77.5, this February sailed almost two degrees above the previous record set in 1954, according to a Times analysis.
