SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - Morning low clouds and patchy dense fog along the coast reaching inland. Typical marine layer pattern takes hold this week, morning clouds clearing out later in the day. Temperatures take a slight cooling trend for the rest of the week. All areas should be at or below April average high temperatures by this weekend, with some help by another low passing through Northern California.
*Low rip current risk. Water temp as low as 56. Moderate risk possible for tomorrow.
*Cooler than yesterday. High temps around the county remain above average today, except at the coast which should be about average. Inland areas are 3-4 degrees above average. Mountains are 13-16 degrees above average. Deserts are 12-17 degrees above average.
*Low clouds and few areas of patchy dense fog (less than Monday). Should clear out by Tuesday afternoon.
*Slight wind gusts possible in the mountain passes and deserts.
A look ahead for the week-
*Similar weather throughout the week, with morning low stratus making way for sunny skies.
*Towards the end of the week, a low pressure system will move through Northern CA. Will cool temperatures for the weekend and deepen the marine layer.
Very slow cooling will take place this week as a trough inches its way towards CA. You know it's uneventful around here when we're bringing up a 4 degree drop in temps over a 4 day period... ?? #CAwx#stratusseasonpic.twitter.com/alkJFiX0J5
