San Diego County could see up to a half-inch of precipitation by noon Sunday as a North Pacific storm continues to spread across the region, according to the National Weather Service.
The low-pressure trough moving over Southern California was also predicted to drop a quarter to half-inch of precipitation along the coast and across the inland valleys, up to an inch in the East County highlands, and a tenth to quarter-inch in the deserts, NWS forecasters said.
Skies are expected to clear by Sunday afternoon, but mountain areas are expected to experience strong with with gusts up to 40 mph.
The storm also was causing a large swell contributing to high surf at local beaches. Those conditions are expected to last through 2 a.m. Monday morning, when the surf should drop quickly.
Dry weather is expected through Wednesday, when a fast-moving follow- up storm is likely to generate some modest showers into Thursday morning, the NWS reported.
