The hottest temperatures are now behind us. Sunday's temperatures cooled a few degrees, bringing mostly 80s west of the mountains. After multiple records were broken Saturday (including an all-time high temperature ever recorded in February in San Diego of 91º), only one record was broken in San Diego County Sunday. El Cajon tied the previous record for daily high, hitting 88º.

Monday, temperatures will cool down around 10º, bringing back mostly 70s with a few lower 80s in the inland valleys.

Tuesday, temperatures will plummet even farther, with temperatures dropping anywhere from 15-20º in a one-day span. This brings daytime highs cooler than the seasonal norm Tuesday.

Along with that cool-down comes gusty winds and rain chances Tuesday. Scattered showers are possible throughout the day Tuesday, with rain totals remaining light. Areas west of the mountains could see a tenth of an inch, with two tenths and even some snow possible in the mountains. This would be the first rain in about a month.

A High Wind Watch has been issued for the eastern parts of the county from 10 p.m. Monday to 10 p.m. Tuesday, with gusts up to 60 MPH possible. Gusts in the 20-30 MPH range will reach the coast during that time frame as well.

After the cool, windy and potentially wet Tuesday, the sunshine returns Wednesday and temperatures warm back up in time for the end of the week.

Monday's Highs:
Coast: 70-79°
Inland: 78-83°
Mountains: 69-75°
Deserts: 84-89°
