Good Friday morning, 

Cinco de Mayo weekend. For Gringo’s. As mentioned last year, this is an American holiday. Mexico does not celebrate this day.

As far as today and the weekend weather, we are looking at fog, drizzle and a chance of rain starting Sunday through Monday. This is all thanks to the cut-off low that has been spinning in the Pacific. It will be inching closer and should be over point conception on Sunday.

As mentioned yesterday, there is not a lot of moisture with this system. However, rain is possible Sunday and Monday.

Low pressure moves over Arizona on Tuesday, so rain chances will go away. 

Forecast ....

Friday, fog and low clouds for most. Marine layer is drifting in as you sleep and I type.

Temps should remain around 70 degrees for a high today.

Saturday, another cool day with a deeper marine layer. This will cool us off some with highs in the upper 60s.

Sunday, the cut off low moves closer to us. This should be over point conception Sunday and spin. We should see some showers at times.

Mainly over the mountains, but likely to drift into the coastal areas and valleys.

Monday, more of the same. Chance of showers, then the system moves into Arizona. 

Tuesday, should be dry with only a chance of rain south of the forecast area in San Diego areas and deserts.

Wednesday and Thursday, is a guess. Models can not decide if another low pressure system will give us a chance of rain.

We will not even discuss this at this point.

Enjoy a cooler weekend, and Happy Cinco De Mayo.
