SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Low clouds and fog over the coastal and valley areas of San Diego County were predicted to clear back to the coast this afternoon, leaving room for hazy sunshine when high clouds drift over the region, the National Weather Service said.
The marine layer was about 2,000 feet deep Saturday morning, allowing the low clouds and fog to spread into the inner valleys. Several locations in San Diego County reported dense fog, the NWS said.
The high-pressure building above the large basin was expected to bring stormy Santa Ana winds Saturday night and Sunday before the winds weakened Monday.
High temperatures along the coast were predicted to be 63-68 degrees with the night’s lowest temperature of 51-56 on Saturday. Valley heights will be 72-77, with 51-59 overnight, the National Weather Service said. The heights of the mountains were expected to be 66-72 with the lowest mountains at 44-54 overnight. Highest levels in the deserts will be 79-84 with lowest levels at 53-62 overnight.
Sunday and Monday were expected to be hot and dry with minimum relative humidity from 5% to 15% from the valleys to the deserts. Humidity along the coast will be closer to 20% to 25%, resulting in elevated fire conditions with critical conditions in the windy areas.
A weak low Tuesday was expected to bring cooler weather and a chance of light rainfall over and west of the mountains.
High pressure Wednesday will bring warmer weather and another round of light Santa Ana winds on Thursday, possibly through Saturday.
Forecasters said San Diego County can expect drier and warmer conditions with gusts from northeast to east from Thanksgiving Day to Saturday.
