Christmas Eve brings light showers to San Diego County

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Light rain fell around San Diego County early Monday, but forecasters said fairer skies and a slight warming trend were in store for Christmas Day.

Strong, gusty winds accompanied the wet weather in the mountain and deserts areas Monday, according to the National Weather Service. The agency issued a wind advisory for the mountains and deserts until 4 p.m., noting that gusts of up to 50 miles per hour were possible through this afternoon.

Rainfall amounts from Monday were expected to be less than a quarter to a third of an inch in lower elevations to less than three-quarters of an inch on coastal mountain slopes. In the deserts, less than a tenth of an inch was expected.

According to the National Weather Service, highs Monday were likely to top out in the low 60s in coastal and western valley areas, the mid-50s near the foothills, the mid-40s to the mid-50s in the mountains and the mid-60s in the deserts.

The agency's Christmas Day forecast called for partly cloudy skies through the region and highs roughly 5 degrees warmer than Monday's.

"A colder low pressure from the Northwest is expected for Wednesday into Wednesday night," according to an NWS advisory.
