An area of low pressure was expected to move into San Diego County over the next couple of days, maintaining cool conditions with gusty onshore winds over the mountains and deserts and a deep marine layer over the coast and western valleys, the National Weather Service said Sunday.

Some spotty drizzle and light showers were possible through early Sunday afternoon from the coast to the coastal slopes, forecasters said.

The weather service extended a wind advisory until 8 a.m. Monday for mountains and deserts in San Diego County, with wind gusts up to 60 mph possible. Areas of blowing dust and sand may reduce visibility at times.

High temperatures near the coast Sunday are forecast to reach 67 degrees, 65 in the western valleys, 66 in the mountains, and 87 in the deserts, according to the weather service.

A ridge was expected to arrive later Tuesday, providing dry and warmer weather through Wednesday, the NWS said. Another cold, upper-level trough will develop over California on Thursday, setting up another round of cooling and widespread gusty onshore winds across the region.

At the beaches, a long period south swell at 3 feet was expected in far northern San Diego County on Sunday. Strong rip and longshore currents were likely Sunday into Monday.
