Colder through the weekend, setting up for mountain snow

Weather Update: Sunday, February 17, 2019 at 11:57 a.m.

Following a series of low pressures, a 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. 

Snow levels are expected to drop 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. 

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. 

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

ADDITIONAL HAZARDS:

  • 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.
