That winter storm is still on schedule to hit San Diego County on Saturday with rain and snow, cold and wind. It will be one ugly day. The good news is that this storm will be only that, a one day event. The sun will return to the sky and the weather will begin its rebound on Sunday.
The latest forecast is much less wet that the forecast 24 hours ago. Rainfall totals form this storm will be fairly light, mostly less that half an inch and some spots will only get a tenth of an inch or so. The cold and the mountain snows of 3 to 6 inches with the snow level dropping to 3,000 feet or lower will be the headline makers this time around.
After this stormy day, the sun comes shining down on Sunday. Temperatures will be slow to rebound but they will still be on the cool side until the middle of next week.
There are no more storm in sight following this one for at least 12 days. At this moment, I am thinking our next storm may come around Sunday, December 22nd and that the weather will be sunny and nice on Christmas. But in truth, that is a rough outlook and I do not have a meaningful outlook yet for Christmas week. I know you are anxious, but I just don't know at this point.
