SAN DIEGO — To start off the weekend, our temperatures will remain warmer than usual, roughly 5° - 15°, as high pressure starts to weaken and move east.
SATURDAY MICRO CLIMATE HIGHS:
- Coastal highs near 80°, normal around 76°
- Inland highs near 92°, normal around 88°
- Mountain highs near 90°, normal around 80°
- Desert highs near 106°, normal around 100°
Smoke and haze coverage will continue to slowly improve each day. As a result, the air quality will also gradually improve. It'll be good to moderate for much of the County this weekend.
AT THE COAST:
A stronger onshore flow will pick up for this weekend as a trough of low pressure moves in over the West. Expect a deeper marine layer, gusty at time up to 15 - 25 mph for the mountains and desert and cooler temperatures. By Sunday, afternoon highs will be 10° to 20° cooler than our Friday heat.
SUNDAY MICRO CLIMATE HIGHS:
- Coastal highs near 76°, normal around 76°
- Inland highs near 86°, normal around 88°
- Mountain highs near 86°, normal around 80°
- Desert highs near 104°, normal around 100°
Troughing over the West will continue through Tuesday as daytime highs remain near or below seasonal across the County. It will also draw smoke from the wildfires across the State northward. As a result, the air quality will continue to improve as cleaner ocean air moves in.
A ridge of high pressure will expand west from the Desert Southwest by the middle of the week. Expect slightly warmer temperatures as highs peak a couple degrees above seasonal Wednesday and Thursday.
