SAN DIEGO - Today marks the beginning of a warming trend as we start to warm 2 to 4 degrees each day through Wednesday. Wednesday and Thursday will be the warmest days of the week with highs about 5 degrees above average, which is bearable compared to the heat wave we had with highs 10 to 20 degrees above average! The heat is short-lived though with temperatures quickly cooling into the weekend.
The marine layer will become more shallow each day through Thursday, but we'll see a deeper marine layer Friday which could squeeze out some drizzle similar to last Friday.
The autumnal equinox which brings the fall season to the Northern Hemisphere is today at 7:29 P.M. PDT. The word equinox comes from the Latin words for "equal night." The fall and spring equinoxes are the only days of the year in which the sun crosses the celestial equator.
A strong onshore breeze will return Thursday through Saturday for some cooling and gusty west and northwest winds.
