SAN DIEGO (CNS) - There is a chance of isolated thunderstorms in the mountains and deserts in the afternoon and evening Sunday, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.

"We're expecting a few thunderstorms in the mountains and upper desert,'' NWS forecaster Brett Albright said. "Low pressure over the coast is helping to bring in monsoonal moisture.''

Albright said temperatures are about normal for this time of year.

The forecast heading into next week is for drier conditions to prevail by Tuesday, with night and morning low clouds and clearing skies in the afternoon along the coast, Albright said.

Temperatures on Monday are expected to be in the low 70s along the coast, in the 80s to 90s in the inland valleys and mountains and in the low 100s in the deserts, NWS said.
