Areas of dense fog will develop tonight from the coast to the valleys, with likely next week. Today was the third day with record breaking temperatures, Campos and Palomar Mountain both set new records. We have another chance for above normal heat on Saturday for the mountains and deserts. 

Borrego will have the chance at breaking the record of 96 from 1990 with a forecast high of 99 degrees. The coast and valleys will start the day with low clouds, and dense fog mixing to a partly to mostly sunny day. The marine layer will return at night into Sunday with another round of foggy conditions. 

Temperatures will be much cooler on Sunday all over the county, but we'll cool down even more on Monday as a storm system arrives. Rain could be heavy at times, the best chance for heavy rain will on Monday. The cold pacific storm will tap into the atmospheric river, giving it a boost and bumping up our preliminary totals to over an inch in many parts of the county. Isolated areas in our mountains could see up to 2 inches of rain. Snow levels will stay above 7,000 feet so no snow expected for our mountains. 

Gusty westerly winds will become stronger on Sunday into Monday with gusts of up to 50 mph. Coast and inland areas will generally see winds less than 25mph on Monday. This will be beneficial as our rainy season is coming to an end and we are still well below average for the water year with a deficit of -2.98".

We dry out by the end of the day on Tuesday, with more sunshine on Wednesday with temperatures back near average. There is a slight chance for a little more rain by the end of the week.

Friday's Highs:
Coast: 67-73°
Inland: 81-86°
Mountains: 70-86°
Deserts: 91-96°
