This week’s temperatures have dropped significantly compared to last week’s record breaking highs.
A welcome change in the weather
Scripps Ranch residents are breathing a sigh of relief this week as temperatures have plummeted compared to last week’s unusually hot, dry conditions with record highs in the 100s around San Diego County and Red Flag fire warnings.
Slight sprinkles locally have already proven the forecast by the National Weather Service true and temperatures are in the high 60s. Tonight, the service predicts a chance for light showers along and west of the mountains and into Tuesday morning. A 20 percent chance of showers is possible after midnight. It should be mostly cloudy, with a low around 63. Precipitation will be light making for just some wet roadways.
Tuesday should be mostly cloudy, with a high near 68. Expect a south wind around 5 mph. Weather on Halloween night is predicted to be mostly cloudy, with a low around 62. A west wind around 5 mph will become calm in the evening.
The sun will break through later this week, but temperatures are expected to only reach the high 60s. A chance of showers will increase Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
