Colder through the weekend, setting up for mountain snow

Weather Update: Saturday, February 16, 2019 at 12:30 p.m.

Weekend conditions are looking cool and wet. A series of low pressures will keep cold air and a chance of rain in the forecast each afternoon and evening through Sunday. Stronger, colder system on Sunday will bring a chance of snow to San Diego mountains. Drier, warmer conditions early next week will not last long. 

Light to moderate shower activity started to move in across San Diego on Friday night. This first round of weekend rain is expected to continue into early morning Saturday. By daybreak, we will see a break in the wet weather with partly sunny skies for the rest of the day.

  • Saturday afternoon high temperatures will be below seasonal norms. 
    • Coastal highs: upper 50s, norm: 65°
    • Inland highs: upper 50s, norm: 70°
    • Mountain highs: mid 40s, norm: 53°
    • Desert highs: low 60s, norm: 71°

By Saturday night, scattered showers will return, mostly light activity. Total rainfall from Friday through Saturday is looking to top out at 0.25" at the coast and inland, less than 0.75" for the mountains.

Snow level will drop from 5,000' Friday night to near 4,000' by Saturday night. Snow levels are expected to drop further, down to 3000,' on Sunday as a very cold and stronger low pressure trough swings southward. This will create another opportunity for widespread light to moderate rain and heavier snow in San Diego mountains. By the time we wrap up the weekend, we could see a foot of snow in our local mountains. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued above 4,000' until 2 AM Monday. 

  • Sunday afternoon high temperatures will be colder. 
    • Coastal highs: upper 50s, norm: 65°
    • Inland highs: mid 50s, norm: 70°
    • Mountain highs: low 40s, norm: 53°
    • Desert highs: mid 50s, norm: 71°

As a ridge of high pressure builds in behind the exiting system, a drier Monday and Tuesday will greet us, but will not last long. Our mid-week forecast will bring another cold trough. More rain and cold temperatures will come with this system late next week. 

ADDITIONAL WEEKEND HAZARDS:

  • Wind Advisory is still in place for the San Diego mountains until 4 AM Saturday. Wind of 20-30 mph may gust up to 55 mph. 
  • Beach Hazards Statement is in effect for San Diego beaches until 4 PM Sunday. Surf heights of 3'-6' will increase up to 7' on Sunday mainly south of Encinitas. High surf and strong rip currents will make swimming conditions hazardous.
