ABC 10News Pinpoint Weather for Sat, March 26, 2022

Hot weather is expected again today! Temperatures will be a little cooler on Sunday but still above average.

Borrego Springs will have the chance to break the 1990 record of 96 with a predicted high of 100 degrees. The coast and valleys will start the day with low clouds and dense fog mixing in with a partly to mostly sunny day. The sea layer will return Sunday night with another round of foggy conditions.

We will cool even more on Monday with the arrival of a stormy system. The rain can sometimes be heavy. The cold Pacific storm will draw on the atmospheric river, giving it a boost and pushing our preliminary totals over an inch in many parts of the county. Isolated areas of our mountains could see up to 2 inches of rain. Snow levels will remain above 7,000 feet, so no snow forecast for our mountains.

Gusty westerly winds will become stronger Sunday through Monday with gusts of up to 50 mph. Coastal and inland areas will generally see winds below 25 mph on Monday. This will be beneficial as our rainy season is coming to an end and we are still well below the water year average with a deficit of -2.98″.

We are drying at the end of the day on Tuesday, with more sunshine on Wednesday with temperatures returning close to average.

Saturday highs:
Coast: 67-76°
Indoor: 78-82°
Mountains: 69-83°
Deserts: 92-100°
