WEATHER UPDATE: 11 AM SATURDAY 2-16-2019

Isolated showers will develop tonight and into Sunday morning. More steady rain will arrive midday Sunday. Showers will persist into Sunday night, then taper Monday morning.

Snow levels will drop to 4,000-5,000 feet, so Laguna and Cuyamaca will gain a healthy accumulation of snow. I've included the computer forecast for snowfall below, which show over 6" above 5,000 feet. Be sure to visit the National Weather Service San Diego for the latest in Watches and Warnings in our area.

Yet another cold storm system will move in Wednesday night and bring more rain for the area Thursday and early Friday. Snow levels could drop as low as 3,500 to 4,000 feet.

WEATHER UPDATE: 7 AM THURSDAY 2-13-2019

A quick update:

Periods of moderate to heavy rain will persist into this afternoon. The heaviest rain will then move out this evening and tonight. Isolated mountain showers are possible Friday, then light rain will overspread the area Friday evening and Friday night. A stray shower is still possible Saturday, then another round of light showers will develop Sunday. Snow levels will drop to 4,500 to 5,500 feet Sunday, so local mountains will get some accumulating snow. It's still early to know exact amounts, but computer forecasts are hinting at a few inches.

NEXT RAIN CHANCE SAN DIEGO: UPDATED TUESDAY 2-12-2019

The next storm system is on our doorstep and will bring rain to our area Wednesday and Thursday. For the most part, this system is behaving as expected, though it sped up a tad. You can spot it on the satellite loop below. Also notice all of the moisture streaming in from the south. The storm system has drifted far enough into the Pacific to push this moisture into Southern California, which will enhance our rainfall potential.

I'm expecting rain to start between 9 AM to 1 PM Wednesday. On-and-off showers will then be possible into Wednesday night. Rain will intensify as the core of the system moves overhead Thursday morning. Periods of moderate to heavy rain will be possible Thursday early morning through Thursday evening. Most of the rain will taper by Friday morning, though an isolated shower could linger into the evening.

Rain totals will range from 1.0 to 3.0" for coastal and inland areas. Some areas in the mountains could exceed 4.0" of rainfall. Forecast maps are below.

Snow levels will remain above 9,000 to 10,000 feet for most of this rain event, though they could drop to 6,000 to 7,000 feet as the system exits Friday morning.

I'm also watching another system headed this way Sunday night into Monday morning. Although rain amounts will be fairly low, snow levels could drop as low as 4,000 to 5,000 feet.
