Patchy clouds for Tuesday but warmer temperatures on the way

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The upper level low that brought San Diego rain and beautiful cloud formations Monday has moved out of the county, towards Arizona and New Mexico. But it didn’t go without leaving behind some low fog and patchy clouds for Tuesday.

Campo, Lake Cuyamaca and Mt. Laguna received the most amounts of rain Monday with Campo and Lake Cuyamaca each receiving over an inch of rain. Most of the county will experience a slight warm up Tuesday that will continue throughout the week and weekend.

A trough of low pressure and a cold front will affect Northern California Tuesday bringing snow to the Sierra Mountains.  That system won’t affect San Diego in terms of rain but it will bring onshore flow and gustier winds. Instead, a ridge of high pressure building over Southern California will bring warmer temperatures for the week and weekend.

Heavy fog in the morning will clear up by Tuesday afternoon but parts of the county will experience some patchy clouds. Otherwise, expect mostly sunny skies with some gusty winds starting Wednesday and Thursday nights.

Our daytime temperatures are going to be slightly warmer Tuesday as that ridge of high pressure begins to dominate San Diego weather. Temperatures will continue to climb into next week and temperatures next Monday could even reach 90 degrees in parts of the county.

Tuesday’s high temperatures are: 66 degrees along the coast, 71 degrees for inland and valley areas, 56 degrees in the mountains and 81 degrees for the deserts.
