A high-pressure system that brought seasonal weather back to San Diego County on Thursday is expected to encourage warmer temperatures through Saturday. But storms at sea that will kick up surf over the weekend may also send clouds.
According to National Weather Service forecasters, temperatures will be near normal today and Saturday, with highs in the 70s along the coast and in the 80s inland.
Hurricane Sandra, about 700 miles south of San Diego and 450 miles west of Cabo San Lucas in Mexico on Thursday, and tropical storm Rick near Hawaii are churning waves in the Pacific that will swell the surf here. Three- to four-foot waves are expected along most beaches, but south-facing shores may get waves up to six feet, forecasters said.
Although generally sunny skies should prevail throughout the county at least through Saturday, tropical moisture may reach the Southland in the form of high clouds. Humidity should be average.
