NEXT RAIN CHANCE SAN DIEGO: UPDATED SATURDAY 12-29-2018

Another blast of cold air is headed our way for New Year's Eve. The leading edge of this front could trigger isolated showers in our area Monday afternoon and into Monday night (60% - I've increased the rain chances). There isn't much moisture with this system, so rain amounts will be limited (less than 0.1"). Snow levels will drop to 3,000-4,000 feet by Monday night, so some local mountains like Cuyumaca and Laguna could see light snow (1-3" possible).

Cold mornings will persist through the week, with lows easily dipping into the 30s Wednesday and Thursday.

It's looking like the weather pattern will shift late next week. A large system will move in off the Pacific and bring rain around Sunday-Monday (1/9 to 1/10). This is a long way away, so the projected track of this system will shift as is approaches. I'll keep an eye on it and bring updates in the coming days.

NEXT RAIN CHANCE SAN DIEGO: UPDATED 12-23-2018

A small but potent storm system will dive out of the Gulf of Alaska and move into our area on Christmas Day (seen on the satellite loop below).

Patches of light rain and drizzle will develop Monday night around midnight. Showers and isolated downpours will then be possible Tuesday morning and last into early Tuesday afternoon. The atmosphere will be somewhat unstable, so there could be a random rumble of thunder. The rain chance quickly diminishes after sunset. Rain totals will range from 0.25" to 0.75" (map below).

Snow levels will be 7,000 to 8,000 feet on Tuesday morning, then drop to 5,500 to 6,500 Tuesday evening. So the top of Cuyamaca could see a little snow.

I'm still expecting cool air to descend into our area for the rest of the week, with Friday being the coldest so far this season. In fact, latest data is showing a reinforcing blast of cold air arriving on New Year's. I'll bring more updates as the front approaches.
