Storm gives way to cold and foggy morning

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The cold storm that brought wintry weather and nearly three-tenths of an inch of rain to parts of San Diego County gave way to patchy morning fog ahead of a gradual warmup Tuesday.

In a one-day period ending at 11 p.m. Monday, automated gauges recorded .29 of an inch of rain in Julian; .28 of an inch in Potrero; .27 of an inch in Descanso; .24 of an inch at Montgomery Field; .22 of an inch in Ramona and Santee; .21 of an inch in Alpine; .19 of an inch at Lindbergh Field; .18 of an inch in Campo; .17 of an inch in El Cajon; .14 of an inch in National City and on Mt. Woodson; and .12 of an inch at Miramar, according to National Weather Service data.

Less than a tenth of an inch of rain fell in numerous locales elsewhere in the county, and light snowfall was reported in areas above 3,500 feet. The showers associated with the storm mostly moved out of the region Monday evening, but the rain continued into Monday night in some inland areas, according to the weather service.

Forecasters said patchy fog would likely develop in some of the wind- sheltered valleys where rainfall was recorded. However, drier and warmer and more seasonal conditions are expected today through Thursday.  

High temperatures todaywill be around:

  • 60 degrees at the beaches
  • Around 59 in the western valleys and in the deserts
  • 44 to 51 in the mountains.
