Just guessing, but its probably the shady side of the house in the morning and has more morning dew than the other sides of the house, which promotes that sort of growth. It could also have something to do with the roof ventilation. A cold roof will stay wet with dew longer than a warm roof.

I agree, that portion of the roof stays wet longer than the areas with no mold.
