Scattered, light showers hit San Diego

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Scattered showers and strong wind continued Wednesday as a trough of low pressure hangs over Nevada.

A wind advisory issued for the mountains and deserts Wednesday remains in effect until noon Thursday. Winds of 25 to 35 miles per hour are expected and some gusts may reach 55 mph. Later Thursday, winds will calm a bit, remaining brisk but not at advisory strength, forecasters said.

“Strongest winds will occur over the coastal waters and mountain ridges, below the passes and canyons, and along the desert slopes and adjacent desert areas,” according to the National Weather Service.

Showers will be scattered and mostly inland during the day mainly affecting mountains and foothills. There is a chance of thunderstorms but it is very slim. The showers will not be severe and should pass by Thursday night.

Average conditions are expected for Friday and the weekend will see average temperatures for this time of year. Sunday afternoon though, a second storm is expected, bringing a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms.
