SAN DIEGO — A weakening 'atmospheric river' made its mark on San Diego Wednesday and mountain snow and scattered rain continued into Thursday, resulting in the decision to change the game time for the San Diego Padres Home Opener. The game will now begin at 6:40 p.m. The wet weather is expected to taper off through the evening hours and likely by the start of the game.
Beyond precipitation, cooler temperatures and gusty west winds will also be felt Thursday. Far drier weather is expected from Friday through the upcoming weekend and temperatures will become warmer and winds will calm going into the weekend, as well.
Once this storm passes, we'll return to a zonal flow, meaning no major boost or drop in temperatures, but skies should clear significantly from Friday to the weekend. Once Friday arrives, another drier stretch should last from Friday through at least the beginning of next week.
