Thunderstorms could move through area today; temperature to rise as week progresses

SAN DIEGO - Sub-tropical moisture moved over San Diego County yesterday, bringing a small amount of rain to the mountains and some inland valleys, and the pattern could continue today, a National Weather Service (NWS) meteorologist said.

Thunderstorms could bring more rain today, some locally heavy, followed by drier weather, said Don Whitlow of the NWS.

"It'll warm up a little more toward the end of the week," Whitlow said.

He said the warming could send high temperatures into the low 90s in inland valley communities like El Cajon and Escondido, a rarity in what has so far been a cool summer.

Yesterday, coastal temperatures remained in the high 60s or very low 70s, while it was mainly in the high 70s inland, according to the NWS.

While precipitation was reported in the inland areas, including the Fallbrook area, the only measurable amounts fell in the far northeastern portion of the county.

About .05 inch of an rain fell in Palm Canyon near Borrego Springs, .02 inch to the north in Coyote Creek, and .01 inch was recorded in Oak Grove, according to the Weather Service.
