SAN DIEGO — It was another chilly and clear morning. This allowed for a drop in overnight low temperatures to kick off Thursday morning. Mid and high level clouds moved in as the day progressed from an area of low pressure nearby. These clouds will act as a blanket tonight. This will translate to cool overnight lows, just not as chilly and downright freezing as it has been under clear skies lately. This will turn our recent 30s into widespread 40s and 50s.
AT THE COAST:
The surf will remain 2 to 4 feet with a moderate risk of rip currents through Saturday.
San Diego County will remain dry with temperatures heading back toward average, and even slightly above. With high pressure still around and less high clouds as the low moves out, expect sunny skies and temperatures 2 to 8 degrees above seasonal on Saturday.
By Sunday, an area of low pressure will move in over the West. The impacts look to be more significant for Northern and Central California with more rain and mountain snow us it tracks north of us. Southern California will have a slight chance of seeing wet weather. Light showers will favor the mountains with a slight chance for sparse drizzle to light showers, west of the mountains -- under 0.10".
With this upcoming system, the main impacts for us favor west winds being gusty at times and cooler temperatures into the start of next week. The stronger wind gusts will favor the mountains and desert with gusts up to 40 mph on Sunday and Monday.
Once the disturbance clears the State, high pressure will build back in over Southern California. This will allow mostly sunny skies to resume as temperatures climb back to the near to slightly above seasonal range by the middle of next week.
