The San Diego region will be mostly dry on Wednesday, but another winter storm is expected to move through beginning Thursday night, according to the National Weather Service.

The last storm system brought cold temperatures, downpours, mountain snow and high winds.

The forecast for Wednesday is partly cloudy and not as cool, with highs around 60 along the coast and in the western valleys, 53 to 58 near the foothills, 43 to 50 in the mountains and 56 to 61 in the deserts.

The weather service warned that rain and snow from the next storm will be heavy due to an “atmospheric river” condition.

Rainfall is expected to range from around 1.5 inches near the coast to 2 to 3 inches in the mountains.

“Precipitation will spread across southwestern California becoming heavy at times late Thursday night into Friday morning,” the weather service said. “Showers will continue Friday afternoon and end from the northwest Friday night.”

The forecast for Saturday through Monday is for dry weather with a warming trend that will raise highs to near normal by Monday.
