Ashlee's Forecast: Warm & Gusty

SAN DIEGO - It’s beginning to feel a lot like spring time…wait that’s not the way the song goes. San Diego is warming up for the first week of winter with temperatures going 10 to 15 degrees above our seasonal averages.  Due to surface high pressure over the great basin a moderate Santa Ana event will develop for late Monday night into Tuesday morning with breezy to gusty condition lingering into Wednesday morning. 

A Wind Advisory will go into effect at 10 p.m. for our valleys and mountains and last through 8 a.m. Wednesday. Expect northeast to easterly winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 mph and isolated gusts up to 60 mph in the typically windy places.

A Beach Hazard Statement continues until 10 a.m. Tuesday for surf of 3 to 5 feet and sets up to 6 feet. Highest surf will be along west-facing beaches south of Del Mar.

Tuesday's Temperatures:

  • Coast: 70-75°
  • Inland: 75-79°
  • Mountains: 52-57°
  • Desert: 73-78°

For Christmas, expect mid-60s west of the mountains, 50s in the mountains and temperatures hovering near 70 in the desert with a mix of sun and clouds.
