A continuing deep marine layer was forecast to bring low clouds, cool weather and patchy drizzle and rain west of the San Diego County mountains on Sunday, the National Weather Service said.

“A deep marine layer will continue to impact areas from the coastal slopes, west to the beaches today, with extensive cloud cover and patchy light rain or drizzle at times,” the agency said.

“The clouds will keep it cool west of the mountains, while fair and warmer weather continues at higher elevations, and across the deserts.”

The marine layer was 4,000 feet deep Sunday morning, with light accumulation of drizzle and rain across western San Diego County.

High temperatures Sunday are forecast to be 62 to 67 along the coast, 63 to 68 inland, 58 to 68 in the mountains, and 84 to 89 in the deserts.

Meteorologists said it will turn warmer next week, with high temperatures well above average Wednesday through Friday. Coastal highs will be in the 80s and valley highs in the mid 90s.

Cooler weather and possibly some precipitation should return next weekend.
