Northern California is bracing for a serious of potentially dangerous winder storms this week, but San Diego will be largely spared.
Some 10-to-20 inches of rain are expected in the north, causing the greatest danger of flooding in a decade, according to the National Weather Service office in San Diego.
“Successive storms will bring excessive rainfall and mountain snowfall to northern and central California through next week,” the weather service said, but “Southern California will see comparatively much lighter precipitation amounts.”
Sunday is expected to be warm and dry in San Diego with temperatures in the 70s.
There is a 20 percent chance of rain overnight on Sunday, but totals are only expected to reach a tenth of an inch along the coast to a quarter inch inland.
The storms in Northern California are expected to drop several feet of snow in the high Sierra, a development that will be welcomde by the state’s water agencies because the snowpack is somewhat below normal so far this year.
