RAIN THIS WEEK

A few showers will be possible tonight and into early Tuesday. Another round of showers will then arrive early Wednesday. Unfortunately this will not be a lot of rain - probably about a half inch or less.

STORM RAINFALL TOTALS IN SAN DIEGO 2/27 TO 3/2

Here are the final totals across the San Diego County area for Thursday (2/27), Friday (2/28), Saturday (3/1) and Sunday (3/2).

Unfortunately I don't see any rainfall for at least a week, maybe more. We're lucky that we got these recent rains!

WEATHER UPDATE - NOON SUNDAY 3/2/2014

These pesky showers just won't go away. You can see on the satellite imagery below, the clearing line is just off the coast. The main storm system from yesterday is already headed to the Midwest, however, it's this little storm behind it that has caused some major headaches for forecasters!

I can't rule out an isolated shower this afternoon for the entire area. Chances for rain then diminish after sunset. I'll post storm totals later tonight. Until then, you can see the numbers in the blog post from earlier today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!


WEATHER UPDATE - 9 AM SUNDAY 3/2/2014

The rain is lingering a little longer than I anticipated. It looks like this last batch will push east by noon. Afterwards, with the exception of a random stray shower, coastal and inland areas will remain dry this afternoon. Isolated showers are still possible through the day in the mountains. The rain chances quickly diminish after sunset.

WEATHER UPDATE - 4:30 PM SATURDAY 3/1/2014

An impressive batch of rain is just about to blast through the San Diego area. Embedded in this line of rain could be isolated thunderstorms, so don't be surprised if you hear thunder. Heavy rain and gusty winds will be possible with the strongest storms. I highly encourage that you stay indoors until this passes! This line is moving fairly quickly, so it will only take about an hour or two for the heaviest rain to move to the east.

Periods of light rain will persist into early tonight. A random isolated shower could pop up on Sunday, especially in the mountains. Otherwise, it should be a mainly dry finish to the weekend. Get out and enjoy it, I know I am!

Snow levels will drop to around 6,000 feet, so most of the local mountains will stay snow-free, though the top of Cuyamaca could get some snow. The taller mountains to the north will definitely get more snow. Last check in Big Bear Lake, there was 7". You can get snow and rain totals at the following link:

WEATHER UPDATE - 1 PM SATURDAY 3/1/2014

The core of the storm system is still to the west. It will settle into the region this afternoon and evening and will bring another chance for showers and an occasional downpour. The atmosphere is unstable enough that I can't completely rule out an isolated thunderstorm, but the chances are pretty slim. Showers will dissipate tonight into Sunday morning, and then the rest of the weekend looks dry.

Snow levels will drop to around 6000 feet this evening and tonight. It looks like Big Bear Lake has already received around 7" of snow.
