NEXT RAIN CHANCE SAN DIEGO: UPDATED THURSDAY 3-1-2018

The next storm system is quickly approaching our area (seen on the satellite loop below). This will bring showers to San Diego by Friday evening and Friday night (starting roughly 7-10 PM). Periods of showers and isolated downpours will persist through the day Saturday, though it won't be a complete washout. Rain chances quickly diminish Saturday evening and night. Most areas will see about 0.5" of rain or less, though some could see a little more. Sunday looks mostly sunny and cool.

Snow levels will be 5,000 to 6,000 feet Friday night, then steadily drop to 3,000 to 4,000 feet Saturday night as the system exits the region. Snow accumulations will be mainly confined to elevations above 6,000 feet. I've attached a computer forecast for snow below. Some areas in the Sierras will receive several feet of snow, which is great news!

NEXT RAIN CHANCE SAN DIEGO: UPDATED MONDAY 2-26-2018

The next storm system is now on our doorstep. Showers will develop this evening from 6-9 PM, then steady rain will overspread the area tonight. This initial round of rain will exit Tuesday morning, then there will be the chance for intermittent showers through Tuesday evening. An isolated downpour is also possible during the day Tuesday, in fact, don't be surprised if you hear a rumble of thunder. Rain and snow chances quickly diminish Tuesday night.

Snow levels will drop to 2,500 to 3,500 feet tonight into tomorrow. Some higher elevations will easily get several inches of snow. It will be nice to see Cuyamaca and Laguna snow capped! I've posted current computer forecasts (NAM) to show the snow potential. As always, check with the National Weather Service for the latest in snow advisories.

The next chance for rain arrives this Friday.
