Cold wintry weather is in San Diego’s forecast this week along with gusty winds and a slight chance of showers.
High winds are expected to cause dangerous conditions for drivers in San Diego’s East County beginning Tuesday.
The National Weather Service has issued a high wind warning effective from 10 a.m. Tuesday to 4 a.m. PST Wednesday.
By midday Wednesday, San Diegans could see sprinkles and showers with cold temperature and windy conditions.
NBC 7's Whitney Southwick said we can anticipate temps in the 50s and 60s west of the mountains.
The best chance of rain is overnight Tuesday into Wednesday then the rest of the day Wednesday with the rain departing to the east early Thursday.
Cooler weather is expected to arrive Thursday and Friday giving San Diegans the chance to wrap up in winter sweaters and boots.
“Highs of only 38 on Thursday, Friday up around Julian even cooler on Laguna Mountain,” Southwick said.
Overnight lows will reach 40s with some of the colder valleys hitting the upper 20s and low 30s.
