The National Weather Service office in San Diego is forecasting two Pacific storms next week, with the first arriving on Christmas Day.
“Christmas Day looks to be windy and cold with a few scattered showers,” the weather service said, adding that the “preliminary outlook is for light to moderate amounts” of snow and rain.
Rainfall is not expected to total more than a quarter inch, with light snow falling above 5,000 feet. But the weather service said wind gusts of 50 to 60 mph are expected in the mountains and deserts.
“Strong, gusty winds may be the bigger impact,” the weather service said.
The second storm is expected to arrive on Dec. 27 and will bring less rain and moderate winds.
