julian and mt. laguna areas are cooler but super windy. gnarly crosswinds west > east. santa ysabel and palomar mtn areas cooler and a little less breezy. personally aiming for a little mesa grande/palomar ride thursday.
mornings better. afternoons tough sledding and the windiest time of day. julian/descanso/cuyamaca/laguna areas not recommended tomorrow/friday for your first ride up there. sunrise hwy is gonna be a blowfest between
the ca hwy 79/s1 (sunrise hwy) junction south to the laguna campground/al bahr camp/giant observation deck.

great western divide/"skyline wilderness" in the triangle between jamul, alpine and descanso a little less windy but low 80's temp-wise. possibly closer and may be a better bet.
plenty of challenges and relatively simple to retreat if you're not feeling it/conditions not to your suiting. take two full bottles. you're gonna sweat but there is support on the edges.
i personally never count on the lyons valley store approx a mile west (on lyons valley rd) of lyons valley/honey springs/skyline dr intersection being open. don't ask me why.
