The cool, cloudy and somewhat damp weather San Diego County has been experiencing will last throughout the weekend and be followed by significant warming next week.

The National Weather Service says a weak low pressure system will thicken the marine layer and carry clouds from the coast to inland valleys and foothills.

There could be partial clearing during the day. But high temperatures will remain below average. San Diego is expected to hit 64 on Saturday and Sunday while Escondido reaches 66 on Saturday and 64 on Sunday.

A high pressure system will begin to settle in early next week and will push daytime highs 10 to 15 degrees above normal in some areas. San Diego is expected to reach 75 on Wednesday and 83 on Thursday. The seasonal high is 67.

The drizzle that’s been falling in recent days has done virtually nothing to lift San Diego’s seasonal rainfall total. The airport has recorded 6.06 inches of precipitation since Oct. 1. That’s 2.54 inches below average.
