    Pleasant weather, little June gloom expected for next week

    Consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote. But when it comes to nice weather, let the hobgoblins reign. Little minds — and probably some big ones, too — can rejoice over San Diego County’s very consistent weather forecast for the next week or so. “It’s unchangeable...

    Cool May breaks San Diego's long warm spell

    San Diego’s warm spell is broken. When the clock struck midnight on Thursday, a 54-month run without a cooler-than-normal month ended. The last time a month was cooler than normal in town was October 2013 — 4½ years ago. It was a remarkable, rare run of warmth. There have been other extended warm...
