Few days of cloudy mornings before heat moves in

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A heat wave is expected later this week, but before it hits, morning skies are expected to remain cloudy with a little bit of patchy drizzle.

For the next couple days, Cloudy conditions and patchy drizzle will continue in the morning hours. A deep marine layer continues to move inland across San Diego County. While it remains, skies will be cloudy and drizzle will be possible in the morning hours. By mid-day that marine layer will start to break apart but temperatures will remain comfortable.  

But temperatures are expected to rise as we reach the weekend. A ridge of high pressure is strengthening over California and by Friday will bring the first major heat wave of the year. An excessive heat watch is expected to go into effect at 12 p.m. Friday to 7 p.m. Saturday. Heat will mostly affect desert areas. 

A beach hazard statement went into effect Wednesday and will last until 10 p.m. Thursday. North San Diego County will experience high surf with strong rip currents.

Wednesday’s high temperatures are 66 degrees along the coast, 75 degrees inland, 79 degrees in the mountains, 104 degrees in the deserts.
