Some changes are coming to San Diego County heading into the weekend.

Saturday, moisture kicking into the region will bring widespread cloud coverage through the day. Spotty showers could pop up, but any rain totals will remain light, if anything.

Santa Ana winds increase Friday evening, peaking Saturday morning and lingering Saturday evening. Gusts will peak in the 40-50 MPH range, favoring the mountains and eastern parts of the valley.

The High Surf Advisory that's been in place the last couple of days expires Saturday at 2 p.m. That advisory was issued thanks to elevated surf and strong rip currents along local beaches.

Sunday, conditions clear and temperatures stay stagnant, then Monday and Tuesday more light rain chances return but still remain on the weak side.

By Wednesday of next week, highs cool down to seasonal norm and sunny skies return. No major rain chances are in the forecast, which is not a good sign for the month. January is typically one of the wettest months of the year and so far San Diego has not received any measurable rain.

Happy Friday!

Saturday's Highs:
Coast: 69-74°
Inland: 69-74°
Mountains: 54-60°
Deserts: 68-73°
