Why does June gloom happen every year?

    June gloom occurs because an offshore system of stratus or stratocumulus clouds move ashore and create the cooling effect on land.

    June Gloom and May Gray are terms associated with weather patterns in Southern California.  During this time of the year, southern California is covered with a layer of marine stratus. The coastal clouds tend to remain all day but often give way to some bleak afternoon sunshine. The number of days during this two month period that are “gloomy” vary from year to year. Cooler ocean temperatures caused by La Nina usually foretell a “gloomier” period.
