Tropical Storm Lidia Brings Muggy, Cloudy Weather on Labor Day

Tropical Storm Lidia is passing through the region

Many across San Diego County will see partly cloudy weather and hot, muggy temperatures on Labor Day as Tropical Storm Lidia passes overhead. 

Temperatures will be five degrees below average for most places in San Diego, but the weather will remain humid. At 8:30 a.m., the humidity in central San Diego had already reached nearly 90 percent. 

A cloud cover will cool off the County. Those along the coast will see a high of 78 degrees, and those in the valleys will see a high of 86 degrees. 

This afternoon, those in the mountains will have a slight chance for a thunderstorm. Expect temperatures in the low 80s. 

The deserts will mostly be sunny, hot and humid, with a high near 100 degrees. 

Mission Beach beachgoers said the sticky air and wet sand was unusual but did not deter them from enjoying a day at the beach.

“It's unusual to say the least, especially on Labor Day weekend,” City of San Diego Lifeguard, Andy Lerum, said on Sunday. “The storm's just now starting to arrive, we're starting to see the ground completely wet on the boardwalk."

The stormy weather didn’t stop most people from getting in the water to cool off.

Dawn Williams and her family wanted a break from the heat out in Escondido.

“[I’ve] never been to the beach in the rain before, but it's still nice considering the weather. The weather's been hot!" she said.

Lydia has weakened into a depression but has left five people dead in Baja California.
