June Gloom


The semi-arid climate of San Diego is very different from the temperate rainforest climate of western Oregon. But the weather in May and June is often very similar--frequently overcast in the mornings and highs in the 60s or very low 70s.

This "May Gray" and "June Gloom" in southern California comes off the ocean at night and results in overcast, morning fog, and sometimes drizzle, usually clearing in the late morning or early afternoon.

There are more cloudy, overcast days (or partial days) in San Diego during this late spring time than in winter.

Although I prefer full sun, the June Gloom period is a favorite of many locals.
