Mother’s Day weekend opens with spotty showers but not expected to be rained out

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Mother’s Day weekend opened with spotty showers following light rainfall Friday, but should not be rained out as a large wrap-around storm system passes through the West Coast. A.M. fog should persist with the amount of moisture in the air, but the brunt of the rain has passed for San Diego County. 

Rain numbers are down despite it being an El Nino year with just five inches measured at Lindbergh Field. That’s two inches less than the average. There could still be scattered showers Saturday with cool air moving in. The skies will still be cloudy over the weekend, but patches of sunshine should break through. 

The highest saturation of clouds will be along the coast, while the highest concentration of rain should be south of the Pine Valley area. 

Temperatures will be in the mid-60’s along the coast through the weekend, climbing into the high-60’s through next week as the chance of rain diminishes. Inland will be in the mid-to-high 60’s over the weekend before moving up into the high-70’s through the week.
