Be expecting extra passing clouds and sunshine this weekend. Cooler temps as well as a significantly better likelihood for rain & mountain snow returns toward the middle of next week.
There can be some light precipitation that could arrive in the county late Sunday night or early Monday morning.
We saw high clouds across the county. The clouds will act as a blanket again tonight, not allowing the day’s heating to escape back into the atmosphere like it would under a clear sky.
With a little far more sunshine and thinner high Clouds tomorrow, daytime highs will be near seasonal.
AT THE COAST:
The high surf has subsided and will stay that way. There will also be a moderate risk of rip currents at our local beaches.
This weekend, we’ll see extra passing clouds with a nearby area of low pressure over the eastern Pacific.
The latest forecast model runs to show it staying well offshore and not building a close approach to San Diego until Sunday. As a result, there is a slight prospect for showers on Sunday night through Monday morning. If it happens, total would be less than 0.10″.
You’ll notice rain chances gradually increase in the outlook. That is due to another area of low pressure moving in from the north. A significant dip in the jet stream with this system’s approach will help keep the weekend low at bay.
A deep trough of low pressure looks to establish itself over the West by the middle of next week. The odds of rain and mountain snow keep increasing each day. It also looks to be a Winter storm driving down the snow level, potentially near 3,000 feet, and bringing a chance for days of rain and mountain snow as early as Tuesday night.
