Temperatures were a few degrees cooler for San Diego coastal and inland communities Friday. Saturday, most of the county will see highs right around 70º with mostly sunny skies.

Santa Ana winds will be picking up through Friday night, peaking Saturday morning, then dwindling through the day Saturday. A Wind Advisory has been issued for inland and mountain communities from 10 p.m. Friday to 6 p.m. Saturday, with gusts up to 45 MPH possible for those areas.

This system is pushing to the west, meaning some clouds could be pumped in the eastern parts of the county the next couple of days. No rain is expected west of the mountains, but mountains could see a few overnight flurries Saturday night.

Next week, temperatures will trend near average with sunny skies and we may see another round of Santa Ana winds by midweek next week.

Saturday's Highs:
Coast: 68-71°
Inland: 67-72°
Mountains: 50-58°
Deserts: 68-73°
