Mountain highs were expected to be 67-75 with overnight lows of 42-49. Highs in the deserts will be 86-91 with overnight lows of 58-66.
The marine layer was forecast to be fairly shallow for the first half of the week, deepening for the middle and end of the week as a couple of weak low-pressure systems pass to the north, the NWS said.
Temperatures were predicted to return to below seasonal averages for the middle to the end of next week west of the mountains and remain at slightly above average in the deserts.
Northwest wind gusts to 20 knots were expected each afternoon through Tuesday, mainly across the outer coastal waters, forecasters said. Otherwise, no hazardous marine conditions were expected through Thursday.
A long-period swell was predicted to continue to bring elevated surf and a high rip current risk Sunday. Surf of 3-5 feet was expected at San Diego beaches. Surf was expected to decrease Monday.
