After a record-setting weekend for heat around San Diego, our airflow overhead will return to some onshore flow today. That will bring cooler weather along the coastline, inland too - and some low clouds likely later this evening and overnight.
But this change in our weather won't last long. Offshore flow is set to get going by tomorrow afternoon, and that will once again blow out the marine layer out over the ocean. Some winds are expected, too, and the computer forecast models from overnight are suggesting that strong Santa Ana winds are coming Tuesday night and Wednesday to San Diego county. This will increase our fire danger of course, but also provide more record heat potential towards the middle of the week. The offshore flow should relax a bit Wednesday but it's looking like you'll see above normal temperatures for most of the upcoming week.
The longer range picture still does not include any rainfall for San Diego, so our rainy season is slowly slipping away. There does look like another potential for record heat yet again this weekend, so the un-March like weather looks to continue for at least the next six days - possibly beyond that.
Matt Baylow is the "Big Cheese" (AKA Chief Meteorologist) for KFMB-TV, and you can catch his weather forecasts each weeknight at 5pm, 6:30pm, and 11pm on San Diego's weathercasts first broadcast in sparkling High Definition. There's never been a "clearer" weather forecast, that is, if you can get past the hair that's out of place. And sometimes the pattern on the tie. Did we mention the tie?
