Weather Update: Monday, March 18, 2019 at 7:00 a.m.
Sunny skies with above-average temperatures are expected throughout San Diego County. Low clouds and fog could return Monday night and temperatures are expected to cool through Wednesday.
A Pacific trough could bring a chance of precipitation Wednesday morning through Thursday. Cooler air flow will also knock a few degrees off our temps, west of the mountains, according to the National Weather Service.
A Pacific low pressure will head directly towards Southern California by the middle of the week. Models have not yet resolved the exact timing of the system, but rain looks like it will last Wednesday through Thursday afternoon. Temperatures will also drop back to seasonal norms by midweek.
Our mountains may be in store for a refreshing coat of white. The storm system midweek should be cold enough to drive snow levels as low as 5000 feet. At the top of the Palm Springs Tram, and in San Bernardino County, above 6500 feet, 5 inches or more of snow could pile up. #cawxpic.twitter.com/GSwfdOOflt
