Mostly clear skies tonight, ahead of the warm up and Santa Ana winds developing early Wednesday.

Santa Ana winds will develop early Wednesday morning, lasting through Thursday. The winds will peak Thursday morning with relative humidity close to 20%. Temperatures will heat up because of offshore winds, 80s will possible near the coast, and 90s in our inland communities. The mountains will return to the 70s, and deserts will stay close to 90 degrees on Thursday and Friday.

The marine layer and onshore flow will be back in time for Halloween Weekend, temperatures will be closer to normal with 70s from the coast to the valleys; nice and comfortable for everyone dressing this weekend.

Temperatures will be much cooler on Monday, averaging about 5 degrees below normal with patchy clouds early and mostly sunny skies by late morning. It's possible temperatures could warm up again starting Tuesday, as a ridge of high pressure takes over the area.

Rain totals for the month in San Diego are now up to 1.01", the average for the month is 0.37". Since the rainfall year just started on October 1st, we are starting with a surplus, but last year we ended with a deficit of almost 5 inches. That means the rain is great but a lot more is needed to refill our reservoirs in the county and to help with the current drought.

Tuesday's Highs:
Coast: 72-77
Inland: 80-85
Mountains: 68-76
Deserts: 80-84
