Strong winter storm expected to hit San Diego overnight

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A storm was expected to drop rain on urban San Diego and create conditions for snow in the mountains Saturday night.

Less than an inch of rain already fell on some areas Friday night, and forecasters said another tenth of an inch could shower San Diego into Sunday morning.

Much of rural eastern San Diego County was under a winter weather advisory ahead of the storm. The National Weather Service predicted snowfall to be possible in areas with elevation above 5,000 feet, and some snow accumulation could even occur at 4,000 feet.

Forecasters expected about one to three inches of snow, with up to four inches possible on the highest mountain peaks.

The advisory was scheduled to last until 3 a.m. Sunday.
