Two, possibly three storm systems to hit San Diego

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) —  Even though the first storm system that hit San Diego Wednesday is on its way out, a second much stronger system is moving in, bringing much heavier showers over the weekend.

Thursday’s Rain and the resulting slick roads also contributed to an increase in the number of traffic accidents Thursday. California Highway Patrol logged 353 crashes in San Diego County. On an average day, 140 accidents are reported on local highways and unincorporated areas. Police urge drivers to use caution and slow down in the rainy conditions.

Friday rain will be scattered in the morning hours but is expected to ease up in the evening into Saturday Morning.  Showers continue to come from the South so temperatures are warmer as there is no cold front moving in. This system has brought as much as a half an inch of rain so far and there is still more to come.

The second system will bring even more wet weather over the weekend. This system is coming from the North and will bring harsher conditions and colder temperatures.

Wet weather will continue Monday and Tuesday. Next week, San Diego can expect half-an-inch to three-quarters-of-an- inch along coastal areas and inland valleys.  Mountains will receive one and a half inches of rain and some snow.

Today though, temperatures will be mild and rain will be light. Today’s highs are: 66 degrees along the coast, 68 degrees inland, 52 degrees in the mountains and 77 degrees in the desert.
