Warming trend continues across San Diego

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — As temperatures continue to rise across San Diego, the marine layer is breaking apart, leaving behind sunny skies and high heat. 

The marine layer is isolated mostly over the coast. It is less extensive than it has been for the past few weeks. About mid-morning most clouds will be gone, but some mid to upper level clouds will remain. Skies will be mostly clear Wednesday before a patchy marine layer returns in the evening.

A warming trend continues across the county. Temperatures are expected to be about two to five degrees warmer Wednesday that they were Tuesday. A ridge of high pressure continues to move west, increasing temperatures by about five to 10 degrees above average for this time of year.

The increase in heat also leads to an elevated fire danger. The combination of increasingly hot temperatures, low humidity levels and strong winds increases the chance of a fire sparking.

77 degrees along the coast, 96 degrees inland, 84 degrees in the mountains and 110 degrees for the deserts.
