Another round of storms headed to San Diego County

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – A series of rainstorms is expected to move through San Diego County this week, possibly beginning late Monday night.

“There’s a couple of disturbances with a trough moving onto the West Coast that will bring a series of storms, with the strongest being Tuesday and Wednesday morning,” Tina Stall of the NWS told City News Service. She said it appears that Wednesday’s rain could be the heaviest.

The forecast for the first bout of rain calls for 1/4-inch along the coast, with more than 1/2-inch in the mountains. The snow level is expected to be around 5,500 feet, or the very tops of the mountains in San Diego County.

Wednesday’s shot of rain could bring 1/2-inch to the coast and 1-2 inches in the mountains, according to the NWS. The snow-level is expected to drop to 5,000 feet.

More rain is possible for this weekend, but a big change could come next week.

“It looks like we do dry out for a while,” Stall said. “We’ll get a high pressure system moving over the Eastern Pacific.”

The NWS is also calling for a heavy ocean swell, which will bring high surf and rip currents to the beaches tonight and Tuesday morning.
