San Diego's Forecast for April 24, 2022: Turning up the heat!

Posted at 5:31 AM, Apr 24, 2022

Sunday brought record-breaking heat to parts of San Diego County. Oceanside hit 84º, surpassing the previous daily record of 82º and much warmer than the seasonal average of 69º.

For coastal and inland areas, temperatures peak Monday. Daytime highs jump to the lower 80s along the coast and upper 80s inland. Some inland areas could reach the lower 90s. Then, temperatures gradually cool through the next couple of days.

Mountains and deserts will see warming temperatures through Tuesday before gradually cooling into the end of the week.

These warm temperatures are thanks to a Santa Ana wind pattern, but winds aren't blowing too strong. However, even breezy conditions can be dangerous when paired with low humidity and heat. Winds shift to more onshore flow, bringing back marine layer potential during the work week.

The next week stays dry with no rain in the forecast.

Monday's Highs:
Coast: 79-84°
Inland: 83-91°
Mountains: 69-81°
Deserts: 92-97°
