Sunny Skies, Warmer Days Head This Way

Now that weekend picnics and holiday get-togethers have been ruined by drizzle and clouds, it looks like the weather will clear up just in time for another workweek.

The recent storm that passed through San Diego County should be just a memory by this morning, according to the National Weather Service.

Sunnier skies and warmer temperatures are on tap for the rest of the week, forecasters said.

The showers that lingered in the mountains and inland valleys Sunday evening will be gone today, leaving only a few chilly gusts of wind and high clouds throughout the county, forecaster Wally Segiel said.


Temperatures in downtown San Diego will be about 69 degrees today, with nighttime lows in the 50s, Segiel said.

Warming Trend

There will be more clearing and warmer temperatures Tuesday and throughout the rest of the week, he said.

The weekend storm dropped .63 inches of rain on San Diego, bringing the total rainfall for the season to 5.43 inches--still 2.58 inches short of the normal seasonal rainfall, according to weather service statistics.


The heaviest rainfall was in the mountains, with Palomar Mountain reporting 4.20 inches of rain and Julian measuring 3 inches, since the storm began Saturday morning, Segiel said.

Campo, Escondido and Poway each reported at least an inch of rain, with lesser amounts falling in coastal areas.

The relatively mild storm provided “a good drenching,” but there were no reported damages, Segiel said.
