A Pacific Storm system will hit the San Diego region late Friday night, dropping a half-inch of rain in coastal areas and a few inches of snow in the mountains.
“A brief period of heavy rain will be possible, with local one-hourly rainfall of over 0.25″, but overall the rain should not last long,” according to the National Weather Service office in San Diego.
The showers could extend into the afternoon on Saturday. Dry but cool weather is likely to follow on Sunday.
A period of high surf will end Thursday night, but the weather service warned that “storms in the Pacific could generate more high surf this weekend and next week.”
Those storms could also make for a wet week in the San Diego region.
“Longer range model projections show a strong jet stream over much of the north Pacific with storm systems moving through California multiple times next week,” the weather service said. “Southwestern California will likely receive precipitation from some of these storms starting Monday and continuing most of the week.”
