Leslie Lopez Weather Discussion – Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Another warm and muggy day here in San Diego. I know it hasn’t been pleasant outdoors the last few days. One more day of it then a minor cool down.

Low pressure is swinging from the north down towards San Diego. It will dry out our airmass and thicken up our marine layer a bit with on-shore winds. This weak cool down will only last a few days and an even bigger warm up arrives Sunday and Monday with a small chance of thunderstorms for our local mountains and deserts, all thanks to more monsoonal moisture bubbling up later in the week.

The surf remains big. Today we expect to see 3 – 5 foot waves, fair form, however all Beach Hazard Statements have expired. Still, watch out for rip currents as they are still out in favored spots along the coast.
