An upper level ridge of high pressure that’s been bringing warm weather to San Diego will weaken through the weekend, and a storm system is expected to move over the area Sunday night and Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

The system is on track to bring cooler temperatures, stronger onshore flow, and scattered showers–heavy at times in mountain areas, according to the NWS.

“The mountains could receive around one-quarter to one-half inch of rain, with amounts generally less than one-quarter inch elsewhere,” the NWS reported. “Isolated higher amounts are possible with thunderstorms, however.”

A chance of showers will continue into Tuesday morning, mainly along and west of the mountains, according to the NWS.

Dry, warmer weather returns for the rest of next week, according to the NWS.
