SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – San Diegans are waking up to bitter cold temperatures and strong winds Wednesday morning.

The high winds are blowing across the county and were also strong Tuesday night in the beach communities, where three lobster fishermen had to be rescued by lifeguards from a jetty in Mission Bay, after heavy winds blew their boat onto the rocks at the south jetty, near the entrance to the bay.

The fishermen were in a 22 foot Boston Whaler around 8:45 p.m. when the propeller of the boat caught on one of the lines of their hoop nets. Before they could deploy the anchor, the boat blew onto the rocks.

All three fishermen got out of the boat safely, but the vessel is still stuck on the rocks.

Tuesday afternoon, the winds managed to bring down some trees around the county, including eucalyptus trees, which resulted in a lot of debris in the area.

Cold temperatures are also on tap for San Diego County. Along the coastline Wednesday morning, temperatures that are starting out in the 40s will still rise into the upper 50s by the afternoon. Inland temperatures are starting in the 30s and are also expected rise during the day.

A frost advisory is in effect until Thursday morning.
