SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego should get a deep soaking today as a winter-style storm blows in.
The brunt of the storm should arrive around midday on winds out of the south at 15-20 mph and gusts up to about 40 mph are possible in the afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.
Highs along the coast will be in the 60s.
The storm is packing a one-two punch and, after a brief respite, a second, colder low-pressure front is expected to arrive late Saturday or early Sunday.
Overnight lows in the metro area will dip into the 40s for a few hours.
The winds will veer around to the west overnight, and Sunday's highs will be hard-pressed to break out of the 50s in some spots, according to the NWS, which predicted rainfall totals of an inch or more along the coast and higher amounts inland.
The rain is expected to taper off Sunday evening as the storm moves east.
