SAN DIEGO – After an overcast and drizzly Saturday, count on a comparable situation to continue Sunday throughout San Diego County. The marine layer was extended early in the weekend and even introduced mild rain (accumulating a few hundredths of an inch) along the coast and inland. A light disturbance brings the same odds on Sunday, but there will still be a slim alternative for some afternoon sun if those clouds can effectively dissipate. Don’t depend on it, but don’t rule it out. If you’re bored with the gray of April, expect a pleasant warming next week.

For your Sunday, you can count on an extra morning drizzle. It can be mostly cloudy with highs in the 60s. In the afternoon and at night, the westerly breeze will pick up with the best gusts in the mountains and the desert. Expect wind gusts of 20-25 mph and at remote locations in the mountains up to 35-40 mph.

Big tweaks, however, are on the way next week. An excessive voltage ridge will gradually build over the next week with a transition from clouds to sunshine and warming temperatures from Monday. On Thursday and Friday, there is a strong chance of sunshine and temperatures in the 90s, with desert areas in the triple digits. Temperatures will rise nearly 20 levels above normal throughout this period as this ridge builds.

Expect 2 to 4 toe surf heights this weekend. There may also be a medium threat of rip currents.

Big changes are expected by next week in the form of a robust ridge of excessive stress building over Southern California. Temperatures will climb 15° to 20° above the season. The peak of the heat is expected Thursday, west of the mountains.

One problem contributing to the heat is the returning Santa Ana winds. Light offshore winds are expected to pick up Wednesday and Thursday. This will bring high weather considerations these days due to the trio of low humidity, gusty winds and sizzling highs.
