Weather Update: Friday, December 14, 2018 at 10:00 p.m.
High clouds hovered over the county on Friday as subtropical moisture moved in ahead of a weak trough of low pressure.
The return of high pressure over Southern California will bring a sunnier setup by the weekend. Expect temperatures to be slightly warmer than average as we sit in between systems.
Another weak storm system will sweep to the north of San Diego county on Monday. Expect a slight chance of light rain, favoring west of the mountains, by Monday night.
On the backside of the system, high pressure will build back in over the region. The offshore flow will keep skies mostly sunny as temp warm up from the offshore air flow on Tuesday and Wednesday. Also expect gusty winds at time in the mountains and foothills during these couple of days.
The approach of this system will generate WNW swell and elevate the surf to 6 ft to 10 ft. The surf will start to increase on Monday morning, peaking Monday night into Tuesday morning before decreasing on Tuesday night. Cautious of a high risk of rip currents.
