    What is the meaning of this?!?!

    Please anyone explain why Los Angeles is currently experiencing cooler temps & increased humidity of a somewhat tropical (?) nature during mid-May when it is usually warmer & dryer this time of year.

    Thank you.

    Edit: I was really just looking for info about what is going on in the Pacific Ocean recently. Seems like there's more moisture than usual for May.

    Los Angeles "May Gray" 2018.png Low pressure over southern Nevada: https://www.nbclosangeles.com/weather/?zipCode=90012

    It's not a tropical issue:
    weather pattern low pressure bringing in clouds from northwest of southern California
    without sun, cooler temps
    without clouds, temps normally approach 80F = warmer-dryer air

    Hi there @thanatogenos, I think the lack of a reply comes from some issues we have had with spam artists who sign up and post something weather related and then blast out spam links. Because they use services such a Digital Ocean (who does not respond to abuse notifications unlike Amazon) we can only verify the server they are connecting from. I don't know about the other admin team but I fully expected you to post some spam which would have been a violation of our ToS/Rules and would have resulted in an immediate ban. Sadly, I was wrong.

    Also historically the forum has been self-focused on weather in the Southeast. When it was first created, by a tv metrologist in Alabama, there were actually forums for each state but the only active forums were in the Southeast due to his audience reach. So with that in mind, most of us aren't up to date on the normal and abnormal patterns for California. However, we would love to include you and learn more about your region. I've spent some time in Palmdale, Lancaster, and Boron and have always been amazed how much of a change in the landscape you see coming into The Antelope Valley.

    With that being said I'm going to look and see if there has been any documentation of the phenomenon you posted about. Maybe some of our other members will chime in as well.
