SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Another storm is battering San Diego County Monday with heavy rainfall, and a Winter Storm Warning was issued for the region’s mountain areas with heavy snow in the forecast.
A round of scattered showers made for a soggy morning commute, but 10News Meteorologist Megan Parry says the precipitation will pick up across the county just in time for travelers during the afternoon and evening drive.
With the rainfall and cold temperatures, the National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning for the mountain areas of the county, including Julian and Pine Valley. The warning takes effect 4 p.m. Monday and will last through 4 a.m. Wednesday.
According to Megan’s latest forecast, Mt. Laguna, Palomar Mountain and Lookout Mountain should see 3 to 8 inches of snow.

For San Diego’s coasts, a High Surf Advisory remains in effect through 11 a.m. Monday due to waves that could reach as high as 7 feet.
NWS forecasters said icy conditions along with gusty winds in mountain passes could create hazardous conditions on the roads, especially on Interstate 8.
Megan says this last storm will lead to some rain on Wednesday morning before it leaves the area.
