The trend of cooler weather with early morning low clouds and fog in San Diego County was expected to continue through Wednesday, the National Weather Service said Sunday.
High temperatures were projected to be a few degrees below seasonal norms each day through Wednesday along the coast, while the inland valleys, mountains and deserts will experience daytime highs anywhere from 6 to 12 degrees below normal for early July.
High temperatures along the coast Sunday were predicted to reach 72 degrees, 74 to 79 in the western valleys, 80 to 85 near the foothills, 76 to 85 in the mountains and 101 to 106 in the deserts, according to the weather agency.
Gusty northwest winds 15 to 20 knots with gusts to 25 knots were expected across the outer coastal waters Sunday afternoon and evening.
Slow warming could begin around the middle of the week, and was predicted to continue into the weekend, the NWS said. The warming could be most noticeable inland. By Thursday, daytime temperatures were expected to be above normal, and minimum relative humidity was forecast to be lower well inland again.
