Sunday will bring another pleasant day to San Diego County. There could be some marine layer that builds Saturday night, lingering into Sunday morning, but that will quickly clear and make way for a mostly sunny day. Temperatures will cool a few degrees for Sunday, bringing highs mostly in the 60s, which is right on track with seasonal norm.

Temperatures will continue to cool into mid-week as a system approaches Southern California. Monday, clouds will build and there's a slight chance for some light rain. Tuesday is when the rain chances really pick up, peaking in the evening hours. Wednesday brings the highest chances for rain before Thursday dries out. Thunderstorms are possible as well.

This storm will be cold, meaning mountain snow looks likely during that time frame. Daytime highs in the mountains will peak around freezing, so it will be incredibly cold at higher elevations.

Simultaneously, winds will pick up. Winds will favor the eastern parts of San Diego County, gusting up to 50 or 60 MPH.

Once the storm clears Thursday, skies will clear and temperatures will start to warm back to seasonal norm into the weekend.

Sunday's Highs:
Coast: 62-67°
Inland: 68-73°
Mountains: 61-68°
Deserts: 79-84°
