After a weekend of record-breaking heat, San Diego could experience some rain, clouds and humidity this week.
“Thunderstorms are expected in the afternoons this week for portions of the mountains and deserts,” the National Weather Service office in San Diego said in a statement. “Storms could develop across all areas Monday night through Tuesday as a disturbance moves across the area.”
The weather service said flash flooding is possible the mountains and deserts.
The region already experienced a sprinkling of rain in some areas on Saturday, which was helpful to firefighters battling local brush fires. On Sunday, Ranchito and Borrego Palm Canyon each received .05 inches of rainfall.
But it remained hot on Sunday, with Escondido setting another a record high temperature — 103 degrees Sunday.
With cloudy skies hiding the sun, forecasters expect temperatures near the coast to start off the week in the upper 70s and gradually decline to the low-to-mid 70s by next Saturday. Highs inland were expected to remain in the low 90s to begin the week and cool to the high 80s by Wednesday.
But it will remain warm in the desert, with high temperatures in Borrego Springs above 100 all week.
