Wednesday begins with cooler temperatures, a breeze, and drizzle that has the potential to turn to rain in some spots of San Diego County. Strong onshore flow continues to direct clouds further into the county and they hold the potential to squeeze out about a tenth of an inch (on average) through the day.
Patchy drizzle, fog, and light rain have the potential to continue through a good portion of the day. Things look to lighten up a bit by the afternoon before showers redevelop overnight and bring light additional accumulations into early Thursday.
At times, clouds may break a bit and allow for a bit of warming, but cooler temperatures will be the trend with mainly upper 50s and low 60s expected across the coast and inland through Wednesday. Warmer temperatures come about by the weekend.
A Wind Advisory is in effect across most San Diego County desert communities with gusts expected up to 55 mph. Winds will be breezy even in many cities that are not included in this advisory, so keep an eye on wind through the day.
AT THE COAST THROUGH WEDNESDAY:
We could see lingering drizzle on Thursday morning, but the afternoon will be drier as a ridge of high pressure moves in. This will lead to a gradual warm up into the weekend with sunshine & passing clouds.
Models are hinting at another storm system making a beeline for the Golden State by the start of next week. We could see more light rain with the potential for the coverage to be more countywide. There is still plenty of time for the models to come into better agreement on timing and amount, if it happens. Stay tuned!
