SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A winter Pacific storm was expected to move through San Diego County Saturday night and Sunday, bringing precipitation and gusty winds this weekend.

Isolated sprinkles and light winds were expected Saturday, with cooler than average temperatures, as a trough of low pressure moved over the West Coast, the NWS reported.

The storm system from the Gulf of Alaska was expected to move inland across Southern California and Northern Baja Sunday and Monday morning, according to a NWS statement.

Winds of up to 40 miles per hour were expected Sunday afternoon in mountains and desert areas, with the lower elevations expected to fall Sunday afternoon and evening, the statement said. Rainfall amounts could reach half an inch at near the coast and up to one inch on coastal mountain slopes.

One quarter of an inch or less is expected in the deserts.

Snow could be possible at elevations of higher than 5,500 feet Sunday afternoon and evening, the NWS said.
