SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A marine layer has begun to rebuild over San Diego, providing relief from extreme heat that hit the County last week.

Tuesday only saw a few record high temperatures as opposed to over the weekend. Only one record high over San Diego County was in Palomar Mountain.

Onshore flow is increasing, extending towards San Diego valleys. Clouds are expected to cover coastal areas until mid-morning. Coastal areas are also experiencing a rise in humidity levels. Surf will begin to build beginning Wednesday. Over the next few days, surf will build with waves reaching  3 to 5 feet.

Mountains and deserts are expected to see winds in the 20 to 30 miles per hour range Wednesday. An excessive heat warning remains in place for desert areas. It is set to expire Wednesday at 8 p.m.

Wednesday’s high temperatures are expected to be 74 degrees along the coast, 87 degrees inland, 85 degrees in the mountains and 110 degrees for the deserts.
