San Diegans, prepare to keep your sweaters handy as the cool weather is here to stay longer. Today's forecast calls for temps just shy of the seasonal norm, according to the National Weather Service San Diego, CA. Looking ahead, Tuesday will dish out more of the same, with patchy morning fog to mix things up.

Overnight frost isn't out of the question, given that a Frost Advisory is in effect until 9 AM for the San Diego County Valleys and the Inland Empire. The Area Forecast Discussion notes, "Temperatures in some of the inland valleys, especially where winds have died off, are currently in the mid to upper 30s." The marine layer is expected to puff up a bit on Wednesday, broadening the coverage of low clouds and fog.

Don't get too cozy with the current conditions, however. The forecast suggests a tease of warmth on the horizon, with minor temperature increases by Friday. But as per usual, this warm snap appears to be a fleeting guest.

Looking to the weekend, there's a shift in the script with rain chances making a comeback on Saturday, though it might hold off until Sunday or Monday. "The overall trend has been towards the slower solutions, so while there are 20-35% chances of precipitation for Saturday, it is looking less and less likely that precipitation will begin that soon," said the National Weather Service. When it does arrive, don't be surprised if the snow enthusiasts get their share of joy with snow levels projected around 6500-7000 feet.

For those curious about precise daily expectations, today brings a sunny high near 65 and light winds, according to the 7-day forecast. Fog may visit later tonight, setting a partly cloudy stage with lows around 46. Each evening until Friday could see a similar foggy curtain call, with afternoons clearing up to sunny skies and steady highs in the low to mid-60s.
