San Diego

June Gloom to kick off the weekend

Onshore circulation will deepen the marine layer into the begin of the weekend. It’ll be gusty at instances with a slip in temperatures via Saturday.

SAN DIEGO — Low clouds had been cussed to utterly clear at the coast. This shallow marine layer stored temperatures gentle in contrast the heat ones felt inland. Basking in the sunshine, daytime highs remained largely in the 80s throughout the county. 

The inland warmth is courtesy of a ridge of excessive strain over the area. The ridge will weaken and slide east as a trough of low strain strikes in over the Pacific Northwest. As a outcome, cooler, marine air will transfer in as onshore circulation picks up. This will lead to inland temperatures dropping a number of levels. Despite the dip in levels, it will likely be one other hotter than typical day for the mountains and desert. Temperatures will stay constant at the coast.

With the winds choosing up, it will likely be gusty at instances from Friday via Sunday. The strongest gusts are anticipated in the afternoon and night hours, particularly on Saturday. West and northwest winds might be highest in the mountains and desert, up to 40 – 50 mph. Along the desert mountain slopes, this may lead to low humidity and elevated hearth climate issues. 

The gusty westerly winds will create a driving hazard via the mountains, particularly for vans and semis. Additionally, the winds may lead to decreased visibility in the desert from blowing sand and dust.

Surf heights will enhance to 3 to 5 ft with units to 6 ft on Friday and Saturday. A excessive danger of rip currents may also return alongside our shoreline.

The longwave trough will make Saturday the coolest day of the week. By the second half of the weekend, the trough might be changed by a weak ridge into early subsequent week. This will lead to a restricted marine layer, calmer winds and hotter temperatures. This will deliver widespread 70s and 80s west of the mountains for many of subsequent week. The warmth might be on for the mountains and desert, particularly with the return of 90s in the mountains.
