A sunny and warm weather pattern is on the way.

Wednesday's highs peaked in the mid 60s for most of San Diego County, which is just a couple degrees cooler than normal, but Thursday's highs will see a quick warming. Thursday will bring mostly 70s to a majority of the county. Coastal areas will peak in the lower 70s, with upper 70s for inland valleys and deserts. Mountains will get up to the 60s.

A Santa Ana wind pattern will dominate through the next few days, bringing light winds Thursday. The strongest winds will occur Saturday, with gusts in the 40-50 MPH range possible.

The next week will be sunny and dry. No rain is expected, which is not good for our rain totals. January is typically one of the wettest months of the year, but San Diego has only received 0.16" of rain so far. About two inches of rain is normal for the month.

Thursday's Highs:
Coast: 69-76°
Inland: 69-78°
Mountains: 60-68°
Deserts: 74-79°
