A storm system has moved into Southern California, and will bring periods of light rain in San Diego County throughout the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
The low-pressure system is expected to soak areas of Northern California, but Southern California is not expected to get anything more than light rain through Sunday night, forecasters said.
Rainfall totals through Monday could reach up to three-tenths of an inch near the coast, four-tenths of a inch in the western valleys, eight-tenths of a inch in the mountains and less than one-tenth of an inch in the deserts.
Rain could begin falling again in coastal areas and the western valleys Saturday evening.
The chance of measurable precipitation is 20% Saturday evening in those two areas, while the mountains and deserts are not expected to see rain until Saturday morning.
Snow levels will remain above 7,000 feet for the duration of the storm.
Skies are expected to clear up by Monday morning, then dry weather is expected the rest of the week.
High temperatures Saturday could reach 69 degrees near the coast and inland, 70 in the western valleys, 69 near the foothills, 63 in the mountains and 72 in the deserts.
