Clouds were reaching into the valleys of San Diego Friday morning. Skies were expected to clear inland by mid-day and linger a bit along the coast. Coastal areas can expect slightly cloudy skies throughout the day.

Cooler temperatures will continue Friday with the weather expected to remain stable through the Fourth of July. After Tuesday, temperatures a warm up will begin.
