“You may want to adjust your weekend plans; it still looks likely to rain with cool temps,” NBC 7 Sheena Parveen said in her forecast.
The sunny conditions that have warmed San Diego for the past few days will soon give way to wet weather that will bring widespread rain to the county and potentially even snow to our mountains.
Increasing winds and showers will creep into the region late Thursday into Friday, creating slippery roads for the last day of the work week.
“Friday morning we’ll talk about the rain on your morning commute,” Parveen said. “For Friday morning, take your time. Give yourself more time and make sure you have the umbrella.
Residents can expect half an inch to one inch of rain for the majority of the county. These wet conditions may even persist throughout the weekend.
“Saturday we’re not done with this storm system yet,” Parveen warned. She added that this system will bring colder temperatures, so a jacket will come in handy.
In the mountains, inches of snow are possible, which will create difficult driving conditions late Thursday through Sunday morning when a winter storm watch is in effect.
Mountain ranges above 6,000 feet could see a foot of snow while elevations of 4,000 to 5,000 feet can expect several inches.
