Santa Ana winds have peaked along with the heat, for the rest of the week expect to see partly to mostly cloudy skies but more easterly winds could return Friday afternoon.

A High Surf Advisory remains for the coast with waves crashing between 5 to 8 feet through early Friday. Dangerous swimming conditions can be expected with strong rip currents.

Looks like mild weather will stay a bit longer, with daytime highs averaging in the 70s from the coast to the valleys on Thursday. A slight chance for showers has been added for our mountains, but we wont see much rain may a hundred of an inch at the most.

The winds out of the east will be back Friday afternoon, Santa Ana conditions will be brief lasting through Saturday. The winds will peak Friday night into early Saturday, with gusts reaching 40 to 60 mph. It is possible a wind advisory may be needed. The winds will target the mountains and valleys. The winds should subside by Saturday afternoon.

The cut off low sitting to our south will continue to slow down, potentially arriving Monday with a slight chance for rain showers for the beginning of the week. This system has been consistently slowing down, hopefully we can stay dry for the Carlsbad Marathon and Half Marathon this weekend.
