A storm system is bringing cool and blustery weather to the San Diego area with gale force winds and rough seas at the coast.

The autumn chill will last through Tuesday morning, according to the National Weather Service. A warming trend will follow for the remainder of the week.

“Our deep, cold, windy low-pressure system is beginning to move out of SoCal this morning. Clouds have decreased, but strong winds are lagging in their decrease,” the weather service said.

Highs on Tuesday will be around 68 at the coast, 65 to 70 in the western valleys, 59 to
64 near the foothills, 54 to 61 in the mountains and 72 to 77 in the deserts.

Gusts of up to 25 mph are possible in the mountains until the afternoon.

Rough seas and gusty northwest winds will continue over the coastal waters Tuesday morning, decreasing this afternoon. A small craft advisory is in effect.
