San Diego's Weather Forecast for May 22, 2024: Cooler with stubborn clouds for week's end

Posted at 4:56 PM, May 22, 2024

The marine layer will spread farther inland overnight and will be slower to clear starting tomorrow, while some areas will see uneven and limited clearing. Tomorrow and Friday areas from the coast to about 5 to 10 miles inland may be stuck in the clouds into the afternoon or only see a few hours of sunshine before the clouds roll back in late tomorrow afternoon.

A storm moving through the Northwest will usher in the deeper marine layer tomorrow, and another storm diving south on Saturday will bring even cooler and cloudier conditions.

Expect cooler temperatures with highs topping out 5 to 10 degrees below normal for most of the county and up to 15 degrees below normal in the mountains by Saturday, which will be the coolest day.

Sprinkles to patchy drizzle will be possible each morning starting Thursday, with Saturday the most likely chance for widespread drizzle, though little to no accumulation is expected. Saturday, May Gray will likely linger all day at the coast with limited to uneven clearing inland.

Some foothill and mountain areas may wake up to patchy fog each morning. In the afternoons, the mountains and deserts will be breezy with westerly gusts of 20 to 50mph.

Sunday will be our transition out of this pattern with better and faster clearing of the marine layer. Warmer with more sunshine just in time for Memorial Day with continued warming through midweek.

Memorial Day Weekend:
On Saturday, temperatures will be in the low to mid-60s at the coast, mid to upper 60s inland, 50s in the mountains, and 80s in the deserts. By Memorial Day, temperatures will warm into the mid-60s to low-70s at the coast, low to mid-70s inland, low 70s in the mountains, and mid-90s in the deserts.

Thursday's Highs: 
Coast: 61-67°
Inland: 68-71°
Mountains: 64-72°
Deserts: 92-95°
