Mostly dry and cool conditions will continue through Monday evening in San Diego County, with another in a series of Pacific storm systems bringing widespread rainfall, strong winds and high-elevation snow to the region late Monday night and Tuesday, the National Weather Service said.
“High clouds will thicken Monday, as a Pacific storm system approaches,” the weather service said. “Some light rain could break out north of San Diego County on Monday afternoon, but more widespread and heavier precipitation arrives Monday night and Tuesday.”
A beach hazards advisory ended Sunday afternoon, but another uptick in surf is expected on Wednesday and Thursday due to an incoming west-northwest swell from 280 degrees. Surf of up to 7 feet is expected in south San Diego County.
High temperatures Monday are expected to be 65 to 68 along the coast, 65 to 70 in the valleys, 55 to 62 in the mountains and 69 to 73 in the deserts.
On Tuesday, an incoming storm could produce thunder and lightning at area beaches. Another break in the active weather could occur Wednesday through early Friday, with potential for another storm next weekend.
An approaching storm could bring hazardous boating conditions in the form of gusty winds and hazardous seas late Monday into Tuesday. Peak gusts of 25 to 30 knots were expected with waves 9 to 11 feet with a 12-14 second period. The storm could also produce isolated thunderstorms over the coastal waters on Tuesday.
