Los Angeles (CBSLA) – Several southern California communities awoke Wednesday morning to gray skies, cooler temperatures, and drizzle.
A thick layer of ocean kept the normally sunny Southern California rather gray, and temperatures were low in what felt more like June gloom rather than mid-August, according to Amber Lee of CBS2 / KCAL9. On Wednesday, temperatures could drop as much as 20 degrees below average.

In some areas the students were unprepared on the way to school and had to resort to a hooded jacket or an umbrella at around 8 a.m. because of the drizzle. However, this week’s gravure system is slated to leave the region by Thursday afternoon.
