Sunday brought warm, windy and dry conditions to San Diego County. Highs jumped anywhere from 10-20º from Saturday. Vista broke a record for daily max temperature with a high of 89º, breaking the previous record of 88º for that date. Oceanside came close to the daily record of 89º with a high of 88º Sunday. Gusts peaked Sunday in the 40s and 50s for San Diego inland valleys, and 50s and 60s for San Diego mountains.

Heading into Monday, temperatures will continue to stay above average (most areas west of the mountains should be in the low 70s for this time of year). Monday, 80s will dominate west of the mountains yet again. Santa Ana winds will start to calm down.

Then, a big change comes Tuesday as highs plummet another 10-15º. Moisture pumps into the region, bringing clouds and the slightest of rain chances. Drizzle Tuesday and Wednesday morning will likely be the extent of any excitement.

Those cool temperatures linger into Wednesday before yet another major change. By Thanksgiving, highs skyrocket again, back to the upper 70s for the coast and lower 80s for inland valleys and deserts. Mountains will see highs in the upper 50s for Thanksgiving. Sunshine will dominate across the county for the holiday. Santa Ana winds return Thanksgiving Day and linger into the weekend. Heading into the holiday weekend, there won't be as many drastic changes. Highs taper off back closer to normal by Sunday.

Monday's Highs:
Coast: 78-85°
Inland: 79-88°
Mountains: 66-73°
Deserts: 79-84°
