A ridge of high pressure was predicted to dominate Sunday’s weather in San Diego County, continuing seasonably hot conditions inland with mild conditions near the coast because of the marine layer, the National Weather Service said.
Monsoonal moisture was expected to increase on Wednesday, leading to a slight chance of afternoon thunderstorms over the mountains, a condition that will continue through Friday, the NWS said.
