‘June Gloom’ to hang around

“June Gloom’’ is not only going to stay around a while, but get gloomier for the first couple days of the work week, a National Weather Service meteorologist said.

“Low pressure is pretty much the major feature over the eastern Pacific and California,’' said Noel Isla of the NWS.

Computer models show the system, and its cloudy and cool weather, willremain for at least the next seven days, Isla said.

Adding to the gloom is a 20 percent chance of rain by Monday night.

“It should be more rain than just drizzle, especially on Tuesday,’' Isla said.

Mist fell early today, with more expected tonight.

The high temperature might reach 70 degrees by Thursday, but that will still be with patchy low fog, according to the Weather Service.

To feel the heat you will have to go to the desert, where the forecast calls for highs in the high 80s early in the week to mid 90s later in the week.
