The heaviest rain and snow from the second of three storms soaking San Diego County this weekend is expected Saturday afternoon, according to the local National Weather Service office.
The inland valleys could get anywhere from 1 to 1.4 inches of rainfall Saturday while coastal areas will see around 1 inch, weather service meteorologists said.
Between 1.4 and 2.2 inches is forecast for the mountains, while desert areas will get around a quarter-inch of rainfall.
“Low-water crossings in many areas will likely flood at some point as larger rivers and streams more quickly develop channel flow, including the San Diego River in Mission Valley,” weather service forecasters said in a statement.
Rain is expected to continue through Sunday afternoon, then a third storm cell will bring lighter precipitation Monday morning through Tuesday.
Meteorologist Stephanie Sullivan said the break between the final two storm cells is not expected to be as definitive as after the first.
