It's a cloudy, cool, breezy day in San Diego.

In the early hours you can add "a bit damp" to the mix as patchy drizzle is reported up and down Interstate-15 and other areas from the beaches to the foothills.

Expect cloudy to partly cloudy skies the next couple of days as a low-pressure trough moves across the state to our north. 

We're getting a strong onshore flow, a very thick marine layer and, we'll see cooler temps and stronger winds as a result.

In fact, there is a high wind advisory posted from noon Monday until 3 a.m. Tuesday for our Mountains and Deserts. 

Winds are expected to range between 25-35 mph at times with gusts over 50 mph possible.  This will be mean blowing sand and dust in the deserts and potentially hazardous driving conditions especially for high-profile vehicles like campers and trucks.

After a beautiful, sunny, warm weekend we'll see cooler conditions all this week with a slight chance of showers by Sunday. 

Monday’s highs are expected to top out in the mid and upper 60s - even a couple of degrees cooler on Tuesday.

We could also see some wet roadways in those spots where the drizzle turns persistent or even evolves into light rain.
