Offshore winds are expected to lead to warm weather across San Diego County this week, with temperatures in the high 70s to low 80s for much of the region, the National Weather Service said.
It will be slightly cooler along the coast on Monday than on Sunday, but the warming trend will pick up as the week progresses.
High temperatures on Monday are forecast to be 67 to 72 near the coast, 74 to 79 inland, 78 to 83 in the valleys, 71 to 79 in the mountains and 92 to 97 in the deserts.
Returning onshore flow Monday and Tuesday will bring modest cooling inland, higher humidity, patchy low clouds, and fog to coastal areas, and gusty westerly winds over the mountains and deserts, forecasters said.
Stronger Santa Ana winds are forecast to develop midweek, forcing another significant warm-up starting Wednesday.
‘Wednesday and Thursday are expected to be the warmest days for the coast and valleys, and Thursday through Saturday for the deserts, mountains, and inland valleys,” the weather service said.
Temperatures will be well above normal through Friday, followed by cooler weather next weekend as increasing onshore flow rebuilds the marine layer inland, forecasters said.
