San Diego

An early-season Winter storm will make its mark on SD through Thursday

Colder temperatures, gusty winds and an opportunity for rain will return to San Diego County beginning tonight. This chilly system will even carry an opportunity for mountain snow.

SAN DIEGO — An incoming storm system will push excessive stress to the east because the jet stream takes a dip over the West. Stronger onshore winds returned and helped knock temperatures down on Tuesday. The strongest are anticipated within the mountains and desert with the height Wednesday afternoon through Thursday. A Wind Advisory is in impact for these elements of the county.

This early-season Winter storm will carry an opportunity for scattered showers and mountain snow. The timeframe appears to be Tuesday night time through Thursday morning. Rain possibilities favor the night time and morning hours with an opportunity for a number of thunderstorms Thursday morning (west of the mountains). There will be rounds of rain anticipated with little to nothing anticipated within the desert (0.05″ or much less). The bulk of the moisture continues to be anticipated within the mountains – as much as an inch potential. 

Additionally, the snow stage will begin out above 7,000 toes on Wednesday morning earlier than dropping close to 4,000 – 4,500 toes on Thursday. We might see as much as 1 – 2″ of snow in our native mountains.

Temperature-wise, this will be a chilly system. Daytime highs will drop 10° to twenty° under seasonal on Wednesday and Thursday. Coolest day of the week will be Thursday. 

The surf heights have been 2 to 4 toes on Tuesday. It will improve to three to five toes with a excessive danger of rip currents on Wednesday and Thursday. Sets as much as 6 toes are anticipated on Thursday.

We will begin to dry out by Thursday afternoon with a gradual heat up beginning on Friday. This development will proceed through Saturday with an offshore breeze choosing up. 

Models are hinting at one other low stress sweeping through the area by the beginning of subsequent week. This will reinforce under seasonal temperatures with one other dip within the jet stream. Expect one other likelihood for showers alongside and west of the mountains with gusty winds choosing up within the desert on Monday.
