MLK Day will bring pleasant weather for most of the day, but light rain chances remain through Tuesday.

Sunday night and early Monday morning, light rain is possible in San Diego County. Most of the day will remain dry, but a stray shower or two is possible. The sun could peak out for a bit Monday, but clouds will build through the day. By Monday evening, rain chances start to increase, with the highest chances for rain looking like Monday night into Tuesday morning. By Tuesday afternoon, conditions will start to dry out and stay that way for the remainder of the week.

Rain totals will remain minimal, with a tenth of an inch possible. Mountains could tap into a little more moisture than that. Keep in mind that January is typically one of the wettest months of the year and by mid-January, usually more than an inch of rain has fallen, but so far only 0.03" have accumulated in San Diego.

Temperatures remain seasonal for the first few days of the week with mostly 60s for a majority of San Diego County. Then starting midweek, highs jump up again, bringing back 70s to most of the county.

Monday's Highs:
Coast: 62-67°
Inland: 66-71°
Mountains: 56-62°
Deserts: 74-76°
