We were out in the desert, and the temp. is a matter of altitude. It was 65 deg.F at the start on the desert floor (Anza Borrego), but very cold (40F)at the top of the first climb (Montezuma Valley Rd.), only about 2,200 ft. higher up.
Very cold on the descent to San Felipe (we carried extra clothes in our jersey pockets so we could dress warm at the summit), then warmer as we got close to Santa Ysabel (take off extra clothes), then colder again on the climb to Julian, and v.cold on the first 2/3 of the 10 mi. descent out of Julian.
Take off extra clothes again when we got down to the desert floor. Some wind, but nothing terrible. This was about 40 mi. from the U.S./Mexican boarder for your geographical ref.
