San Diego's weather will turn cool, damp before Halloween

Last week’s oppressive heat wave is giving way to crisp fall weather that will arrive just in time for Halloween, which is Tuesday, says the National Weather Service.

A low pressure system over Southern California has brought back the marine layer, and it may be thick enough Monday and Tuesday mornings to produce drizzle in coastal areas. And it might do the same on Tuesday night.

Forecasters say the daytime high in San Diego on Monday and Tuesday will be 68, or about four degrees below average . The temperature will drop to 62-64 on Halloween night in San Diego, and will fall all the way down to 52 in such inland communities as Ramona, the weather service says.

On Halloween, there will be a waxing gibbous moon; about 80-percent of the moon’s surface will be illuminated.
