Megan's Forecast: Storms move to mountains, deserts

SAN DIEGO - The cut-off low responsible for the active weather day yesterday is pushing inland causing storms to fire in the mountains and deserts this midday. We've had reports from Shelter Valley just east of Julian of 1/4 inch of rain in just 5 minutes! Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon for the mountains and deserts. Storm threats include abundant lightning, gusty winds, small hail, heavy rain and flash flooding.

A FLOOD ADVISORY has been issued for eastern San Diego county until 2:30 PM for possible urban and small stream flooding. 

The low will continue to push inland this afternoon and exit into Arizona tonight. Once the low moves out of our area the storm threat will move out with it. 

Calmer weather returns on Friday through the weekend with highs remaining at or slightly below average before we warm up again into next week.

If headed to the beaches be aware a BEACH HAZARD STATEMENT is in effect through Sunday afternoon for elevated surf and strong rip currents. Remember if caught in a rip current to swim parallel to the shoreline. 

THURSDAY TEMPERATURES:

  • COAST: 74-79
  • INLAND: 80-88
  • MOUNTAINS: 70-78
  • DESERTS: 95-100
