Fair and warm weather was forecast for San Diego County on Saturday, but the overland flow and a coastal whirlwind could bring cooler weather and more cloud on Sunday, with stronger, gusty winds over the mountains and deserts from Saturday afternoon.

Cooler weather and deeper marine layer are expected to prevail through Tuesday, followed by warmer weather and a shrinking marine layer through the second half of next week, the National Weather Service said.

High temperatures along the coast on Saturday are forecast to be 66 to 71 degrees with overnight lows of 49 to 54. Western Valley highs are forecast to be 74 to 79, and near the foothills 78 to 83 with overnight lows from 48 to 53.

Highs in the mountains were expected to be 75 to 83 with overnight lows of 44 to 51, and highs in the deserts were expected to be 96 to 101 with overnight lows of 59 to 53.

Clearing could be limited in some areas of the coastal basin in the coming days, with a chance of scattered drizzle as well, the NWS said. Winds were expected to be strongest on desert slopes and under desert passes, where a few locations were likely to see gusts of 50 mph or more. This could sometimes create pockets of blown dust.

Warmer weather with weak ridges was expected Wednesday through Friday, followed by cooling next weekend and the following week.

West to northwest winds could blow up to 20 knots in outer coastal waters Sunday afternoon and evening.
