Marine layer clears to bring sunny skies to San Diego

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A marine layer has spread all the way into the valley areas of the county but by about 10 a.m. Wednesday morning it should clear leaving mostly sunny skies for the rest of the day.

A weak eddy spinning over the coastal waters is giving San Diego that marine layer, which is expected to return Wednesday night until Thursday morning. A trough of low pressure is moving in from the Northwest towards Nevada and Arizona. It won’t affect San Diego much but it will bring some onshore flow, a slight cool down and a high winds especially over the mountains and deserts for Thursday and Friday.

Gusty winds will begin Thursday morning and could last until Saturday. Gusts of 25 to 70 mph will hit mostly the mountains and valleys but a high wind watch will be in effect.

Once that marine layer clears Wednesday, temperatures will be warmer than Tuesday, in some areas by 8 degrees. After a slight cool down on Thursday and Friday, temperatures over the weekend, will warm up again and skies will be sunny.

Wednesday’s high temperatures will be: 68 degrees along the coast and 76 degrees for inland areas.
