Dry and toasty this weekend

Drier days will return across the county through the weekend. But, monsoonal moisture could bring possible afternoon rumblings for mountains & desert on Monday.

SAN DIEGO — A ridge of high pressure will move in as our main weather maker throughout the weekend. This will keep us dry with more warmer than usual temperatures in the 70s along the coast and widespread 90s inland. Most daytime highs will peak 5° to 15° above seasonal.

SEASONAL (AVERAGE) HIGHS:

  • Coast: 73°
  • Inland valleys: 86°
  • Mountains: 81°
  • Desert: 105°

Continued onshore flow will favor a shallow marine layer, keeping patchy low clouds and fog closer to the coast, each night and morning. When it comes to our weekend heat, this will also keep coastal communities mild compared to the rest of the county. Much of the same is expected for next week.

Gusty west winds in the afternoons will impact the desert through Sunday. This will lead to elevated fire weather concerns across the desert due to the presence of dry air and hot temperatures.

By Sunday, high pressure will be positioned over the Great Basin. This will be the case through Monday. This will tap into nearby monsoonal moisture and lead to more clouds added to our scenery. As a result, we'll see some vertical lift with cumulus clouds popping up over our mountains with the heating of the day. This will also present a chance for isolated afternoon/evening thunderstorms in the mountains and desert on Monday. West of the mountains, there will be an uptick in humidity. 

For the rest of the week, a trough of low pressure looks to make a beeline for the West Coast. This will lead to a gradual cooling throughout the week. This will have daytime highs peaking near to below seasonal from Thursday through the start of next weekend.
