A cold and windy storm system will bring light rain and mountain snow to the San Diego region beginning Sunday afternoon and continuing through Monday.
“Our string of exceptional winter weather is about to come to an end,” the National Weather Service office in San Diego said in its forecast.
“It will be much cooler through Tuesday,” the weather service said. “Maximum daytime temperatures on Monday may not get out of the 50s west of the mountains.”
Highs will be 63 to 68 near the coast on Sunday and a few degrees cooler inland, but then drop 10 degrees on Monday.
The weather service is forecasting rainfall starting Sunday night of less than 0.10 inches in coastal areas, but up to half an inch on the coastal mountain slopes.
The snow level will drop to 2,500 feet, with trace amounts at the level and accumulation of up to 3 inches above 4,000 feet.
Winds of up to 30 mph are forecast for coastal areas and inland valleys, with gusts over 50 mph in the mountains.
The storm will cause hazardous conditions for small craft on Monday, with peak gusts of 30 to 35 knots and seas of 7 to 10 feet.
