Californians woke up to a Tsunami Advisory after an underwater volcano erupted near Tonga, creating impacts on the west coast of the United States. By Saturday evening, the Tsunami Advisory had expired in San Diego County, but remains in place for most coastal communities in California.

San Diegans also woke up to light rain Saturday morning, which was the first measurable rain of the new year. Totals remained minimal, as expected. Most areas only saw a couple hundredths of an inch. San Diego picked up 0.03", which is the first measurable rain for the year. However, January is usually one of the wettest months of the year and San Diego usually should have received more than an inch of rain by mid-January, so the 0.03" so far is far below normal.

Sunday will dry out but temperatures will stay similar. Monday, some moisture kicks back into San Diego County and some light rain is possible, but Tuesday looks to bring the highest chances for rain. That being said, totals will not be major Tuesday and will likely be similar to Saturday with a few hundredths at best.

By mid-week, skies clear and temperatures warm back up to mostly 70s for a majority of San Diego County. Those clear and warm conditions remain into next weekend.

Sunday's Highs:
Coast: 66-72°
Inland: 70-75°
Mountains: 60-67°
Deserts: 73-78°
