Megan's Forecast: Light Rain Arrives Tonight


Temperatures a touch cooler this midday with highs today near average. Clouds will continue to build this afternoon as a cold front currently pushing into northern California continues to dive south.

A High Surf Advisory expires at 5 p.m. for surf 4-7 feet, highest on exposed west-facing beaches.

The approaching cold front will bring a chance of drizzle to scattered light showers along and west of the mountains tonight into Friday morning. You could see drizzle as early as 7 this evening with peak shower activity between 2am and 7am and generally ending by 10am. Rain totals will generally be less than a tenth of an inch. 

Very similar to last week the showers won't be spread out equally and we'll see anything from heavy mist to light rain. Be prepared for wet, slick roads on your morning commute tomorrow.

THURSDAY'S TEMPERATURES:

  • COAST: 66-70°
  • INLAND: 68-72°
  • MOUNTAINS: 53-67°
  • DESERT:  73-78°

Another change on the way as dry, offshore flow returns Monday into Wednesday as a weak to moderate Santa Ana wind event develops. Expect winds to be less than the round we saw earlier this week. The Santa Ana Wildfire Threat Index is forecasting a 'Marginal' event for San Diego county Monday and Tuesday meaning any fires that ignite may spread quickly.
