Dry and Warmer on Tuesday with Santa Ana winds, but tonight it'll be another chilly night in the county.

Temperatures will range from the mid 30 to low 40s by sunrise, under clear skies. Wind sheltered areas could easily see lows between 32-38 degrees. Winds out of the east will be ongoing tonight into Tuesday, with gusts of 30 mph for the valleys and foothills. 

The winds will shift on Wednesday afternoon turning westerly but becoming stronger. The wind gusts will target the mountains and deserts Wednesday into Thursday morning, ahead of a weak disturbance bringing the chance for showers Wednesday night into Thursday.

It looks like our chance will range 20 to 40 percent, but confidence is low. This system may favor the mountains, but any additional rain is always welcomed. Weather models are hinting at light accumulations between a trace to a quarter of an inch, possibly more in our mountains.

March is typically the last month of our rainy season, then drier conditions will follow as we head into April. Since October 1st San Diego has seen 5.08" but our deficit is 2.44". 

We dry out Thursday night, with another round of Santa Ana winds into early Friday morning. The weekend will be sunny and mild with gradually warmer temperatures by Sunday.

Tuesday's Highs:
Coast: 66-72°
Inland: 62-70°
Mountains: 54-61°
Deserts: 71-77°
