L.A. weather: Expect 'June gloom' in October until Thursday

October 21, 2013|By Ari Bloomekatz

Meteorologists are calling it "June gloom" in October and say Angelenos will have to wait until the end of the week for the sun to reign supreme.

"Kinda June-ish ... June gloom is here for the week," said Andrew Rorke, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

Rorke said temperatures throughout the week will be from around 70 degrees at the beaches to the upper 70s inland, and into the mid-80s in the valleys. He said there was no real chance of rain.

Downtown L.A. on Monday was expected to have a high of 76. At Los Angeles International Airport, temperatures were forecast to reach 68 degrees. Temperatures will be warmer in the valleys, with Burbank expected to hit 80 and Woodland Hills 84.

"We just have a very stagnant pattern ... nothing really to push it away," Rorke said.

The gloomy weather will begin to break up on Thursday when "things will get sunnier and warmer," Rorke said.
