With pleasant temperatures averaging in the 70s and hardly any rainfall, summer is peak season in Santa Barbara. This is the time of year when most of the annual events occur in the city, bringing with them more crowds and elevated hotel prices. This is also the time of year locals call “June Gloom” — the foggy season. (inf src)
Here’s from John Dickson’s Santa Barbara community guide. He apprises what this place can offer, with its incredible notion in addressing the place season as “June Gloom” or sometimes “May Gray”. Its temperature is so wonderful and will keep you breathless in your whole vacation.
In the blog it says:
“As locals know and most visitors figure out fast – the Pacific Ocean is really, really cold. If you drive over the Santa Ynez Mountains, you will also discover that inland is very, very warm.
When those warm desert winds hit the cold ocean waters, it generates a billowing fog that sweeps inland. The temperatures are kept cooler here in large part because of this fog.
The upshot is that throughout late May and June (until the ocean warms up enough for this not to happen) each morning dawns dank and foggy. Fortunately, it usually clears by noon. This gives us the temperature break that we need and the sunny summer afternoons we expect.
So hang in there – the fog will lift. And when it does we can smile at the poor souls inland suffering with 100º+ temperatures to our 80º or so. It’s a small price to pay for heaven!” (inf src)
