Fair weather will give way to widespread rain in San Diego County later this week, meteorologists said Monday.
The forecast is welcome news at a time when there is widespread concern about a drought in California.
The shift in the weather should begin as early as late Wednesday into early Thursday, when a weak trough of low pressure will bring gusty winds and a small chance of light precipitation over and west of the mountains, according to the National Weather Service.
By Friday night through Saturday, a stronger Pacific low pressure system will bring strong winds and widespread moderate to locally heavy precipitation throughout the county, the agency said.
