Monsoon moisture is expected in Southern California
San Diego (CNS)-The National Weather Service said that high pressures in the southwest are expected to bring more and more monsoon moisture to Southern California this weekend.
The National Weather Service stated that thunderstorms may occur, mainly in the mountains and deserts on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and evenings. From Saturday night to Sunday morning, there may be showers in coastal and valley areas.
Due to monsoon flows and higher sea surface temperatures, ocean stratus clouds may be more limited. It is expected that this mode is also conducive to higher humidity and warmer nights.
The highest temperature in the desert area is expected to be 104-109 degrees on Saturday, 88 to 95 degrees in the mountains, 87 to 92 degrees near the foothills, 71 to 76 degrees in the coastal areas, and 76 to 81 degrees in the inland areas.
The National Weather Service said that the best time for a thunderstorm seems to be Sunday afternoon.
As the monsoon continues to be weak, there may be periods of sporadic to sporadic showers and thunderstorms for most of the next week.
The high temperature next week is expected to be close to the seasonal summer normal, but the night may be warmer than usual.
It is expected that low clouds on the coast at night and in the morning will be more scattered and intermittent.
