SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Yet more rain is headed for already-soaked San Diego County, according to the National Weather Service.
The next storm is expected to arrive Wednesday and be colder than previous storms, but should taper off by Wednesday evening, said NWS meteorologist Jamie Moker.
The storm is expected to drop another quarter-inch of precipitation, and a half-inch in the mountains, where snow will fall above 4,000 feet, he said.
Coastal winds of 10-20 mph, gusting up to 40 mph, are also in Wednesday's forecast, Moker said.
Last week's rain caused washed-out railroad tracks, flooding in Mission Valley, a saturated Qualcomm Stadium and flooding along the Santa Margarita River in North County, which led to acting Gov. Abel Maldonado declaring an emergency in the county on Christmas Eve.
