Storms passing through San Diego over the weekend

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Two quick-moving storms were expected to bring cooler weather, showers and gusty winds to San Diego County this weekend, with the best chances for rain this evening and again Sunday afternoon.

Winds will be rather strong this weekend, especially Sunday, with local gusts over 65 mph possible along the desert slopes of the mountains. Moderate to locally heavy rains were expected to drop up to a half inch west of the mountains and up to an inch in the metropolitan San Diego area near the west-facing slopes.

Snow levels will start out near the 6,000-to-7,000 foot elevation this afternoon but fall to 5,000 to 6,000 feet by this evening. Snowfall will generally be 1-4 inches late this afternoon and into the night. Peak wind gusts were expected to be 60 to 65 mph on the east-facing mountain slopes, and even stronger Sunday with local gusts around 70 mph.
