Storms to Continue Throughout San Diego County

Posted: Updated:
The National Weather Service is predicting heavier rain, snow and possible lightning strikes across San Diego County over the next few days.

The second of several back-to-back storms expected in the San Diego area over the next several days was expected to bring heavier rain, snow and possibly lightning strikes to the region Saturday.

Moisture from the leading edge of the series of low-pressure systems started falling in the North County on Thursday. Within a few hours, drizzle was reported as far south as downtown San Diego, according to the National Weather Service.

A second, more frigid atmospheric pattern arrived Friday and was likely to generate heavier rain and, possibly, periods of lightning through Saturday, according to the Weather Service.

At the coldest point of this second storm, the snow level was expected to drop as low as 4,500 feet, though it should mostly hover around the 5,000-foot mark, with at least several inches of frozen flakes accumulating in most upper-mountain locales, NWS meteorologist Stefanie Sullivan said.

This current system is expected to dissipate by Sunday. But another system could bring more showers Monday and early Tuesday before fair weather returns to the region, according to forecasters.

By the time this batch of storms moves east, the blustery fronts were likely to produce around two-thirds of an inch to 1 inch of rain along the coast and in the inland valleys, and about 2 inches in the East County highlands, Sullivan said.
