SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Warmth and sunshine return to San Diego this weekend to make weeks of steady storms a distant memory.

Temperatures will reach the mid 70s at the coast by Saturday, according to Kalyna Astrinos in the 10News Pinpoint Weather Center.

The weekend will see gradual warming, with temperatures climbing to the high 70s by Sunday.

In the desert, sunny skies will make the colors of wildflower super bloom pop. Expect temperatures in the 80s in the Borrego Springs area, Kalyna says. Get information about visiting Anza Borrego Desert State Park here.

If you’re going to the beach, conditions should be excellent. No cloud cover should interrupt your sunbathing, and no strong winds are in the forecast to blow sand onto your towel.

Lifeguards are prepared for crowds. SDFD lifeguards began using seasonal or part-time staffing March 1, in addition to full-time teams, according to San Diego Fire-Rescue spokesperson Mónica Muñoz.

Beachgoers will find their chief concern is finding a parking spot - not the weather.
