Tonight, will be another cold one, before temperatures start improving Wednesday. 

Chilly conditions continue into overnight, with 50s and 40s for most of the county and mere 30s in the mountains. 

The winds will continue dying down, as the latest storms moves away. High pressure will take over, providing warmer weather but also weak Santa Ana winds. It'll be sunny and a few degrees warmer on Wednesday. 

Temperatures will gradually warm up through the weekend. The warmest days will be Friday and Saturday. Santa Ana winds will develop Thursday night into Friday. The winds will be out of the Northeast ranging from 20 to 40 mph. Relative humidity will drop between 10-15%. The combination of windy, dry, and warm conditions will elevate fire danger, the areas of concern will be our mountains and foothills. 

On Friday and Saturday, temperatures will climb to the mid and upper 80s in our inland communities, and close to 80 degrees in San Diego and near the coast. The pattern will be sunny and warm into early next week.

San Diego's October rain total is at 0.80", which is well above the average of 0.11" for this time of the year. This is a great start, but the year is just starting. We'll keep you up to the latest, and all the changes.
