Daniel Swain in Laist: Is LA’s Marine Layer Going To Burn Off Someday And Never Ever Come Back?

Los Angeles’s summer marine layer — aka June Gloom, aka May gray — is one of the most unique aspects of living along the coast. It keeps things cool through the morning and burns off in the afternoon to reveal gorgeous blue skies.


I asked some climate scientists.

“We don’t know what’s going to happen to the marine layer,” said Park Williams, Research professor at Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University

“We don’t necessarily know yet at this point,” said Daniel Swain, climate scientist at the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability.
