San Diegans can expect warm weather and clear skies for the first weekend in October after a work week that saw several days of cool, overcast conditions.
“A warm weekend is in store with mostly sunny skies as light offshore flow persists thanks to high pressure over the Great Basin,” the National Weather Service office in San Diego reported.
“Widespread 90s can be expected for inland valleys, with upper 70s and low 80s at the coast making for a nice beach weekend,” the weather service added.
Highs on Saturday are forecast to be 79 to 84 near the coast, 88 to 93 inland, 92 to 97 in the western valleys, 87 to 92 near the foothills, 77 to 83 in the mountains and around 94 in the deserts.
Sunday will be about the same, though perhaps a little warmer in the mountains and deserts, according to the weather service.
The morning layer won’t make much of an appearance, so this should be a great weekend for the beach.
“Coastal low clouds and fog will be very patchy if not absent altogether this weekend,” the weather service said.
The only caution in the forecast is a concern over “elevated fire weather conditions” inland due to low humidity.
