Thunderstorms to develop across San Diego County as weekend progresses

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Moisture in the area is creating the possibility of thunderstorms and flash floods in the mountain and desert areas of San Diego into the weekend.

No watches or warnings were in effect Friday morning but there is a chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms in the mountains and deserts with a chance of widespread showers over the weekend. The largest chance of showers is Sunday.

The development of thunderstorms is due to a surge of sub-tropical moisture moving through the region. That moisture is also increasing the development of clouds along the coast. Expect clouds to stretch about 15 miles inland in the morning and evening hours throughout the weekend.

Temperatures were expected to be cooler Friday and Saturday before a warm-up begins Sunday.

High temperatures Friday will be 72 to 77 degrees at the beaches, 76 to 81 inland, 79 to 84 in the western valleys, 84 to 89 near the foothills, 81 to 88 in  the mountains and 96 to 101 in the deserts.
