Los Angeles - June was especially gloomy in Southern California, with temperatures in Los Angeles below normal every day of the month.

The National Weather Service says the region has gone through "a fairly noteworthy stretch of cool weather."

June's average daily high in downtown Los Angeles was 74.5 degrees, five degrees below normal.

The downtown daily high only reached the 80-degree mark or higher twice in June. The last time it was that cool was in June 1982, when there was only one 80-degree or higher day.

At Los Angeles International Airport, the highest temperature for the month was 71 degrees, the lowest maximum for a June since records began being kept in 1944. The airport's average high temperature last month was 69.3 degrees, the lowest since June 1982.
