Tuesday brought cooler-than-normal temperatures with highs topping out in the lower 60s. Ramona only hit 59º, which is below the average of 66º normally felt during this time of year.
A disturbance passing through Southern California brought the cloud coverage that helped keep temperatures cool. That has mostly cleared, and now skies will stay clear for the next week. It will take a few days for temperatures to recover, though.
Highs will stay relatively cool until a warm-up this weekend. Overnight lows will cool down to the 30s for much of the county for the next couple of nights.
Santa Ana winds pick up the next couple of days, peaking Wednesday. Gusts could reach 40 MPH and even 50 MPH in wind-prone areas, with gusts around 20-25 MPH reaching to the coast at times. Those winds linger into Friday, then calm down Saturday before starting up again Monday and Tuesday.
