Cool weather on tap for San Diego County

Weather Update: Saturday, January 20, 2018 (1:50 p.m.)

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) – Chilly temperatures and scattered showers started the weekend. Temperatures at the coast and inland communities hovered around 60 degrees with some areas of San Diego County receiving rain during the morning hours.

Cool weather was also on tap for the mountain areas, which were going to reach a daytime high of 47 degrees with a low of nearly 30 degrees. In the desert, 64 degrees was expected.

A low pressure system moving across Southern California was expected to bring snow showers and gusty winds to the mountain communities Saturday morning. A winter weather advisory was in place until 10:00 a.m. Saturday.

The highest surf conditions continue on the San Diego coast through Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

Several strong storm systems in the Gulf of Alaska have caused a large northwest long period swell to start moving down the seas off California. These large, long-period swells will bring an extended period of high surf to northwest and west facing beaches across SW California beaches through at least Saturday night, the NWS warned.

Forecasters said inexperienced swimmers should stay out of the water for the duration of the advisory.

There is potential for high surf to continue into next weekend, the NWS said.
