Central San Diego is cooling off after a hot weekend, but high temperatures will remain in the foothills and deserts of east county through Wednesday.
The National Weather Service office in San Diego said daytime high temperatures are expected to drop into the high 60s to low 70s along the coast by Tuesday, with fog in the morning.
It will be warmer inland, with highs in the low 80s in the inland valleys and into the 90s near the foothills. Temperatures in the deserts will top 100 degrees.
The hot, dry and windy conditions over the weekend fueled several brush fires, including the 2,000-acre Gate Fire near Jamul.
