The National Weather Service office in San Diego is forecasting another day of rain for the San Diego region on Thursday.

“More rain is on the way,” the weather service said in a 3:30 p.m. forecast update. “The period of heaviest rainfall will occur between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Thursday.”

The coasts and valleys are predicted to get 0.25 to 0.50 inches of rain, with a little less falling in south San Diego County.

The mountain slopes will get between 0.5 and 1.5 inches, and snow could fall above 7,000 feet.

The rain is not expected to cause flash flooding or debris flows, but accompanying gusty winds in the mountains and deserts could make driving difficult for high-profile vehicles.

The showers are expected to taper off by Thursday night, but another period of rain is possible starting Saturday night, according to the weather service.
