A slow moving low pressure system will bring periods of showers and isolated thunderstorms through early evening decreasing during the weekend. Warmer and dry for next week. The marine layer and weak onshore flow will keep coastal areas cooler with areas of night and morning low clouds and fog. The onshore flow will also bring GUSTY WEST WINDS to the mountains and deserts each late afternoon through late evening.

A slow moving closed low pressure system centered over Southern California will move into the Central Rockies through Sunday. Early this morning a shortwave off the Northern Baja Coast was enhancing showers over the Coastal waters and adjacent Coastal areas of Northern Baja and far Southern California mainly Central and Southern portions of Coastal San Diego County.
