NEXT RAIN CHANCE SAN DIEGO: UPDATED WEDNESDAY 12/23/2015

This last system tapped into some tropical moisture, which helped to boost rain totals. You'll notice on the loop below that the moisture (indicated by reds and bright blues) broke off before it entered our region. Otherwise, our rain totals would have significantly increased. Regardless, it's a sign of a changing weather pattern.

Our next system will not have this tropical connection. Nonetheless, we will have a chance for a few showers tomorrow (Thursday) night into early Christmas Day. It will also be very cold Christmas Day night!

The storm afterwards (1/28 to 1/29) is not looking as impressive. It's still worth watching though.

WEATHER UPDATE: 8 PM TUESDAY 12/22/2015

Scattered showers will persist through tonight and tomorrow morning. The chance for rain will then slowly diminish between 8 AM to noon. Winds will also dissipate during this time. I'll post the storm totals once the rain is done.

I'm watching another system headed this way for the end of the week. Rain will return Thursday night (Christmas Eve) and early Friday (Christmas).

NEXT RAIN CHANCE SAN DIEGO: UPDATED MONDAY 12/21/2015

Isolated showers will develop this evening and tonight. The chance for showers will persist on-and-off through Tuesday, which will be a cloudy, windy and raw day.

This will be the beginning of a series of cold fronts that will sweep through our area, bringing a chance for rain and colder weather. Right now, here is the tentative timing for the other fronts. A lot can change as these systems head this way, so be sure to watch the forecast carefully.

  • December 24-25 (moderate chance)
  • December 28-29 (slight chance)
  • December 30-31 (slight chance)
