Grab an Umbrella: Days of Rain Approach San Diego

San Diego Rain 20130125 001

San Diego County will be met with days of rain and the possibility of snow as storm after storm moves into the region starting Thursday. 

The first of three storm systems will move south into San Diego County Thursday afternoon, wetting grounds for the evening commute and dumping up to a half-inch of rain before the day is through. 

“Even though you’re going to leave the house [Thursday] morning and it will be dry, take the umbrella because you’ll need it later in the day,” Parveen said in NBC 7’s First Alert Forecast. 

The storm system was hovering over Central California and making its way south early Thursday morning.

By about 1 p.m., the brunt of the storm was expected to reach North County San Diego with heavy downpours that are expected to last through the evening commute. 

Some coastal areas and inland areas could see up to an inch of rain from this storm system alone, though snow is unlikely, NBC 7 Meteorologist Dagmar Midcap said. 

Skies will clear for a day of dry but gray conditions on Friday. Then, a stronger storm moves in over the weekend, Parveen said. 

Heavier and more widespread showers will begin overnight Saturday and last throughout the day, even lingering into Sunday, Parveen said. The system could dump more than an inch of rain onto San Diego. 

The storm may also bring some snow to mountains ranges with elevations higher than 5,500 feet, though Parveen said it is likely San Diego mountain ranges will see a wintery mix of rain and snow.

It is likely that a third storm will bring more showers early next week, Parveen said. In total, all storms combined could bring several inches of rain to parts of the county.
