Sunday brought near-normal temperatures with mostly 60s for San Diego communities west of the mountains. That will soon change, though, as temperatures warm the next couple of days. The upcoming work week will be mostly sunny and dry, then more changes come next weekend.

The Wind Advisory currently in place for mountains and deserts is set to expire at 1 a.m. Monday morning. So far, gusts have peaked in the 40-50 MPH range for those regions. Winds will taper off overnight.

Starting Monday, highs will warm to above-average temperatures for most regions, meaning 70s along the coast and lower 80s inland. Those conditions will remain through the next couple of days. St. Patrick's Day will be warm and sunny.

By next weekend, a Pacific storm moves into Southern California, bringing rain chances, wind and cooler temperatures. Highs will plummet to mid 60s west of the mountains and 50s in the mountains during the day. Currently, rain chances begin Saturday evening and continue into Sunday. This storm is just in time for the first day of spring Sunday.

Monday's highs:
Coast: 67-72º
Inland: 76-81º
Mountains: 68-73º
Desert: 84-86º
