WEATHER UPDATE: 11 AM SATURDAY 11-26-2016

Scattered showers will move into the area this afternoon and evening. An isolated downpour and some thunder will also be possible. Intermittent showers will persist on-and-off into Sunday. The rain chance quickly diminishes Sunday evening.

The core of the system is farther east than earlier anticipated, so snow levels will be a bit higher. They should range from 6,000 to 7,000 feet into Sunday and briefly dip to around 5,000 to 6,000 feet as the storm exits Sunday night.

Today inland and coastal winds will range from 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph. Winds Sunday will range from 20-30 with gusts to 40 mph. In the mountains, expect winds today to range from 35 to 55 mph with gusts to 60 mph. Sunday mountain winds will range from 40-55 mph with gusts to 65 mph. Winds will subside by Monday.

NEXT RAIN CHANCE SAN DIEGO: UPDATED WEDNESDAY 11-23-2016

The active weather pattern will continue this weekend as a storm system dives out of the Gulf of Alaska and into our area. This will be a one-two punch. The first wave of showers will arrive late Saturday when the initial cold front passes. Another round of showers and isolated downpours will arrive on Sunday as the core of the system settles overhead.

This is a cold core system, so parts of the Sierra Nevada will see snow over the weekend. Snow levels could drop as low as 5,000 feet here in Southern California on Sunday.

Expect significantly cooler weather. Temperatures will struggle to into the 60s Saturday. Highs will range from the upper 50s to low 60s on Sunday.

Winds will pick up on Saturday. I'm expecting blustery conditions Sunday into early Monday, especially in higher elevations.

I'll have another update on Friday. Happy Thanksgiving!
