The next week will bring significant changes to San Diego County! To start, a Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for inland valleys from 11 p.m. to 9 a.m. Sunday morning.

Sunday, Santa Ana winds will kick in. This is a moderate event and winds will remain relatively calm, peaking in the 30-35 MPH range. Temperatures will see a slight increase Sunday and Monday though, with highs warming to the upper 60s along the coast and lower 70s inland.

That pattern is short-lived. A storm heads toward Southern California Tuesday, falling apart before reaching San Diego. This will keep temperatures mild and increase the marine layer, but does not look to bring major rain chances to San Diego County. The real rain chances kick in a few days later.

A larger system approaches San Diego Thursday. This storm looks to bring significant changes. Not only will San Diego receive some rain (which we haven't seen since October), but temperatures will drastically drop, winds will pick up, and there could be some mountain snow. Impacts from this storm will be felt in the Thursday evening to Friday range.

Sunday's Highs:
Coast: 62-68°
Inland: 67-73°
Mountain: 68-74°
Desert: 80-84°
